so after setting up my X-Carve for the first time, I wanned to run my first project. My Setup is:
- Dewalt 611
- 6mm 2 Flute EndMill from German CNC online Shop
While running the first job my endmill shook loose and got stuck and nerly broke of. So I thought I did not tighten the nut far enough. But after doing that and trying again, same result. Endmill slipping down and getting stuck.
So the Dewalt wants to get 1/4 in bit which is 6,3 mm. So it seems the 0,35mm are a big enough issue to not hold the bit tight enough. So I searched and the answer seemed to be to get collets and an ER11 Nut (which seem the only option to get) to hold them down.
After my ER11 arrived in the mail today I was stunned due to the nut beeing to small. But only like half a mm. So now I’m lost and thought I will not be alone with this issue and maybe someone of you have already figured this out and could provide my with some help.
