Hi Ed, and welcome to this forum. My Meteor had the older controller, and one day it simply quit working unexpectedly. Len at Probotix sent me a new Unity controller in exchange for my old one after I'd verified that something internal had failed which I couldn't fix. He mentioned that series of con...
Great job! The round corners of the original cut out pattern almost make me think it was also done on a CNC, or at least with a template and a hand held router. Perhaps years after the the pews were originally made. Not sure how long ago hand held routers came to be. I'm guessing none were available...
When a lot of material is removed (by a roughing pass) I've seen boards bow upward as fresh moisture reaches the newly exposed wood. Knowing that could happen I typically set my allowance to 1/8" or even more just to make sure none of the roughing cuts are left after doing the finish pass. If t...
I'm glad you got it to work. Yes, sometimes a mystery (especially this time of year) can be hard to figure out. I've had static discharge send my CNC somewhere unexpected/unprogrammed so that may have been the criminal responsible. It happened when I was following the bit with my dust collector hose...
You didn't say what CAM software you used, but in vectric's products there is a home Z value that the CNC will move to when every job starts. It is normally set .8" above the material, but if a different value got in there (such as a big negative number) it would force your CNC to move into the...

You'll have to use their configurator app that you can find on their wiki page. It is an option you can select as you run through it.

Thanks for posting. Good use of a CNC for making the parts. Great video. :) You talked about tuning the system. I'm wondering what your options were for tweaking it if it had needed tweaking? Different spring? Different attachment points for the same spring? If you change to a camera that weighs mor...
I've never had honesty trouble with their support. I also had a Nebula suddenly act up with limit errors as well as e-stop warnings. In my case it ultimately was a limit switch that was connected wrong. It is normal to see limit errors if you activate the controller (orange icon) before it is powere...
