It’s a balancing act. The faster you cut it, the smaller the kerf you wind up with, and the current Proofgrade settings create a very minuscule kerf. Almost non-existent.
And this is a natural material, there are always slight variations in material, so you have to expect that too.
For those of you who are worried about being out the money for a bad cut, yes they will replace the material if there is a defect in it, but frankly it’s just not worth the hassle. It makes much more sense to just send a second cut, then you don’t have to worry about filling out warranty information, waiting to get approval on the claim, and waiting another week to get another sheet of material shipped out to you.
One process takes five minutes, the other process takes ten days. How much is your time worth?
(And try the pick, or tape, or jiggling. Whichever one you like. They are methods that work.)
