She's alive!

Got my new X-Carve setup, took me about 8 hours total over three days and only ran in a few snags, I would give it about a 95% success on my end. I did my second test carve this evening, a two stage carve and I would say it ran pretty smooth, again about 95% to my standards, only two issues that I see, first was my z probe wasn’t recognized or asked for which it was on my first test carve that was a one stage carve and went great… The second issue with the second carve (two stage) was that I was a bit confused about the second clean up bit (1/32 fishtail) first roughing bit was a (1/8 straight flute)… The issue I had was the length of each bit is cosiderbly different and had trouble homing it… Any suggestions? Here are exambles of my first and second carve.

Thanks Phil, the anticipation of getting it setup and going had me so anxious, but thanks to veterans like yourself and others I took my sweet time and did a lot research on the forums… Like my dad (carpenter and cabinet maker) always says: “measure twice, cut once”. Cheers!
