Broke 2 1/32 bits when probing

new to x carve and easel everything is good and going great z probe works great with evry bit except 1/32 bits it just goes and breaks and z probe keeps going down i have to stop probing to stop itgoing down. im scared to try it again i looked into the forum but couldnt find any info in regards wondering if im doing something wrong or if theres something im missing thank you

Your not doing anything wrong those bits are very fragile. If you look at them wrong they will break. If you can get away from that small of a bit and use a vbit you will be better off. Or if you have to use it try probing with a piece of paper where you can slow the z way down on how much you go down.
