Please help using Radial Stock to Leave and Rest Machine

Hi,  I'm creating a sign and I want the letters to stick up. I'm using the engrave tool path to engrave inbetween the letters and the other elements in the sign with a 90 degree bit. After that I want to pocket out the middle part that is left with a .25 flat end mill. Next I want to get the rest with a tiny 0.0568706 pointed bit. The problem is when I set the radial stock to leave = .25 that works great for the first pocket so it doesn't remove the slanted edges from my engrave. But when I use radial stock to leave .25 and rest machine = .25 with the tiny bit it won't make any tool paths. However it leaves material that the tiny bit could get out. Mostly you can see this on the edges. Please check out my file. Thank you so much! Julia

I think you need to add the stock left in the 2nd op to the rest tool diameter in the 3d op. In effect the second tool 0.25 diameter + 0.25 stock was like using a 0.75 tool when it comes to stock left. Seems to work if I set the rest tool diameter to 0.75"

@seth.madore Seems like you should be able to set Stock left by previous op within the rest settings. In the past I've worked around this by setting the corner radius to the stock left in the previous op but that didn't work on this example.
