    Under cut controls there is an option to offset. I was wondering what that actually does. I have played around with it trying to figure out what it does and I can't figure it out.

    It tells Versaworks what offset you have on your blade. If you are getting new blades that are the correct ones then there will be no offset. If you are getting them resharpened then you will have an offset because the center of gravity will have changed and how the cut head drags the blade will be different. The blade works like the front wheels on a grocery cart. The shaft is offset from where the blade actually makes contact with the material. Hope that helps.

    Should be .25 for the 45 deg. .50 for the 60 deg.

    The "Offset" is the difference between the center of the blade and where the point of the blade is...this is standard at .025 (with the 45degree blade) ...We don't have anyone change this setting (with either 45 or 60 degree) as the cuts will not line up or be completed in other areas.
