Re: Lines in Finish Project

Set the machining tolerance in the MDI command box with G64 P0.001. This really improved the appearance of my 3D carvings.

Tool length sensor errors

I've been getting errors when the tool length sensor is used. I took a look and found that the plunger seems sticky. Is the sensor serviceable? Can I take it apart and clean it? I'm thinking it may be full of sawdust. Sometimes it trips just as the tool touches it. Right now I'm not using it and am ...

Re: Z axis and tool touch off

Here is a link to the Probotix Wiki page for using the tool length sensor. http://www.probotix.com/wiki/index.php/Using_Automatic_Tool_Length_Sensor I had similar issues to yours until I followed the steps listed in the wiki. The Z-puck is used when the instructions say to touch off the axis. Make s...

Dust collector brushes

I've had my Meteor for just over a year and a couple of weeks ago had to replace the brushes in the Dewalt router I use with it. Since the dust collector runs automatically with the router, I'm thinking the brushes on the dust collector might be getting worn, too. Are brushes available for it? It's ...

Re: Moving on to the next project file ??

That's almost exactly what I do. That should work for you. If not, there must be something else going on. Good luck.

Re: Moving on to the next project file ??

Did you read my post on my Z-puck mishap this weekend? You have to be careful handling the z-puck so that the aligator clip doesn't touch the plate on the puck. If it does, I believe it resets the z axis to wherever the tool is at at the current moment. That might be why its cutting too high or too ...

Re: Moving on to the next project file ??

All I do after each project is to touchoff the x,y,z axis on the new workpiece. Click run, it touches off on the tool length sensor and begins the new cut.

Re: Z-Puck mishap

That's what I thought too, 4D. Maybe when it was headed to the tool length sensor it was active. Anyway I'm being more careful where I place it after using.

Z-Puck mishap

I haven't had my z-puck very long and it's worked great until I slipped up yesterday. I realize now it's my fault but I thought I'd put a word of warning out to other new users of this device. I had started a new project and just got the CNC initialized and all axis set and clicked go for the first ...
