I’m going to cut an acrylic sheet I’ve never used before, so I’ll run a test on it first for engrave/cut. When I measure the thickness (with my accurate but not-precise calipers), it wavered between 0.06" and 0.07".
If I hold gentle pressure on the jaws, it reads the lesser number, but when I let go it reads the higher number. I’ve had this happen where I went with the lesser, and didn’t get a clean cut (had to run a 2nd cut). Should I just default to the highest reading from now on, or improve my technique? Or just take the average of the two? [I can be a slow learner some days.]
I take at least 3 sample readings on each new piece.
