Help!! Magnet cutting, machine hard to calibrate

How do you figure your going to loose over 11" of material per cutting? 

It's called nesting in the industry; you can get more parts out of a single 24 ft long sheet than two 12 ft sheets, depending on the part dimensions.

If one part is 13 feet, neither sheet can be used and is why longer steel lengths are better (in this case magnet material).

I don't see why you would need pre feed with sheets. 

Probably because I don't want to cut the roll into sheets.

Dang, he/she is smarter than me - I have nothing more to add to this thread.

I am with you on that one.  I know what nesting is. LOL  The same as in this industry. :rolleyes: I also have nothing to add to this thread either

You asked the question on why the material would be wasted, so I replied to you with a legitimate answer..

Thank you, Sue! I am grateful for the wealth of posts that were posted here. I guess I have not explained myself well enough and people don't understand what I want :(
