Line ends a little off on start and finish

I laid down a straight line to cut in a thin piece of ply, 1/8". Used a 1/4" straight bit with super slow speeds of 30ips, and 5ips for down travel speed. For some odd reason, when the bit plunges into the wood it has a little ‘movement’ prior to cutting the straight line and a little movement upon exit.

It also does this with just about everything I carve. :frowning:

It’s probably time to take it apart and tweak all the hardware. I’ve not done that since I built it.

Yep…probably should have put that on my Christmas Wish List.
