Hello everyone. After a long sleep of my Ox CNC machine, I finally had some time trying to get it running again.
Currently I am trying to find the limits of my machine and what it can do.
Yesterday I tried cutting hard wood for the first time. I have not seen this problem with soft wood yet.
At first I tried to cut my ~30 inch (75 cm) Nintendo sign with 1/3 inch (8mm) rough cutting with 100 i/m (2540 mm/m). 1/10 inch depth per path (3mm).
Well it started smoking a bit and the result was unfortunately not too good.
So I tried my 1/8 inch (3.15mm) straight flute (1/16 inch depth per pass).
Still with 100 i/m (2540 mm/m) feed rate.
It looked like the machine had to fight a little, but overall the first hour went fine.
After a couple of passes I notices that everything “moves to the left” a little bit.
Was I going too fast anyway or might just something be loose?
Thank you for your help!
Here are a couple of pictures:
