does anybody have any idea how to fix it???
shave it down with a half inch or greater bit…do you have your center brace installed???
you’ll lose your lines but thats what a square is for
I agree with @RonSommers looks like the center brace is gone or you are setting on a hollow bench.
The center brace is good but I’m thinking the table that its sitting on is not that great I’m about to order a couple extra braces from inventables to put extra support on the board
While there are lots of people that will cut into their “spoil boards” and or resurface them, I have never been an advocate of doing this.
I have always considered it the “bed” of my machine, and as such it should be completely flat.
However, because of the inherent problems of movement with MDF, I have replaced my bed with aluminum fixture plate.
I ALWAYS use a piece of hard board under whatever I’m cutting to protect the bed. (I did this even before I replaced it)
My Z zero is always from the top of my work piece.
I use a 1/8 piece of MDF as my pad for my cuts. Then after it has lived its life I use it for cutting stencils.
I’m looking to go to the aluminum bed as well. Florida humidity is making it impossible to keep the MDF from changing daily.
Take a look at ATP-5 cast fixture plate.
That is what I used for mine.
It has the same specification as Mic 6 plate but cheaper. (your not paying for the Alcoa name)
My whole machine is within ~.005"
Jan, What is the price range?
Its been a couple of years but if I remember correctly it was around $250.00 ish.
I don’t know what size machine you have, but mine is a 750 and I still have the machine print with all the hole locations.
If anyone is interested I will gladly share it.
What thickness did you get?
