I probably need more (or less caffeine) today… can someone help me understand the concept behind this?
I have a circle that I cut that fits a small magnet inside it perfectly. But when I engrave the same circle, it is significantly smaller and the magnet doesn’t fit at all.
The cut circle is .225” in diameter, but the engrave has to be .25” for the magnet to fit. (This has been in thick walnut, but that shouldn’t make a difference, I don’t think…)
What is the principle I’m missing for why a cut and engrave are so different in actual size?
