Lately when I try to carve I get what you see above, it likes to offset (or sometimes does whatever it wants) That image being carved it 2 cursive L's on fill setting. (Material, cut depth and speed rate not the issue) Been all over the forum, I tightened up the belt, checked v wheels, eccentric nut, set screws, checked wires all seem tight & secure.
1) When I power it up, should I see both green and blue lights? Green only turns on when i move the X Y or Z components.
2) When the power is on, I shouldn't be able to move the X Y or Z components, Correct? I can move all 3 with power and spindle on. And I have no idea how to fix this.
3) Is temperature an issue, it has been very cold out in the garage.
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!! So far I have gotten 4 good carves and hubby is starting to refer to my X-carve as the expensive paper weight.
