Our testing shows that these set ups work best with KING STARBOARD®AS

Cutting:

These tests were run on 3/4" material. All cuts were performed with the dot side up. Downcut tools and compression tools were also tested but tended to cause excessive melting in deep cuts using smaller diameter tools.

1/2" Diameter Tool using a climb cut at 150 IPM 18,000 RPM

Cutting Edge Diameter: 1/2
Cutting Edge Length.: 1-1/8
Shank Diameter: 1/2
Over All Length: 3-1/2
Tool Material: Solid Carbide
Helix: Up
Flutes: 3
Rotation: RH

3/8" Diameter Tool using a climb cut at 200 IPM 18,000 RPM

Cutting Edge Diameter: 3/8
Cutting Edge Length: 1-1/8
Shank Diameter: 3/8
Over All Length: 3
Tool Material: Solid Carbide
Helix: Up
Flutes: 1
Rotation: RH

Engraving:

The sample used was for 1/4" cutting channels wide and 1/16" deep into the material.

The best results we achieved were using a router bit with these dimensions:

Cutting Edge Diameter: 3/16
Cutting Edge Length: 5/8
Shank Diameter: 1/4
Over All Length: 2
Tool Material: Solid Carbide
Helix: Down
Flutes: 1
Rotation: RH

Feed at 120 ipm was very good with the 3/16" diameter tool working a 1/4" wide channel in a climb cut direction.

This router bit can be purchased from http://www.onsrud.com part number 62-718

To create a crisp edge with a saw, use 1800 RPMs at 150" per minute and a good carbide blade that has 50-75 teeth.

 

Cleaning

King StarBoard® is very chemically resistant and most common detergents and cleaners work well. You can use a nylon “scrubby” or stiff bristle nylon brush but care should be taken because excessive force can mar the finish.
 

Bleach can be applied and allowed to soak to help lift persistent stains. Pressure washing is also an acceptable method of cleaning. To clean a petroleum problem such as grease or oil, use citrus cleaner, alcohol, or mineral spirits. Care must be taken to avoid contact with pencil lead or prolonged contact with teak oil and other oil based products as these do not clean well and may cause staining.

Furniture polish or products such as Armor-All® can add an attractive luster to the finish and hide small mars on the product's surface.

*Do not use polishing products on stepping surfaces to prevent the danger of slipping.
