The term Shannon was looking for is trademark genericide. My favorite example is Escalator. Because I have no idea what it otherwise would be called.
Hola! It feels good to listen to a “fresh” episode. I only started listening about a week and a half ago. I’ve listened from newest to oldest and I got to “They Quit” when this episode dropped. I’m cool if you quit since there are 450+ more episodes for me to listen to SO LONG AS YOU COME BACK when i get caught up 😀 Have a good one!

I use down cut bits when engraving or dad’s on the CNC So I don’t have tear out to clean up, especially on sheet goods. I use compression on through cuts, but if you have to take multiple passes you have to make sure to go down past the upcut part. 3d carving typically use upcuts to clear materials. There are different applications for each spiral type.
You just blither on . Waste of time listening to you
