Hey everyone! New to the club here so looking for some guidance. I’ve started cutting little things and haven’t had many issues that weren’t the obvious mistakes on my end. But I am having an issue now that i cant figure out. It seems that if i try a cut that is longer then 2 hours the machine will always end up going off track. Sometimes well before that. For example I have a Planimetric table that I’m working on and it cut right through its own design. there is a whole cut out for a dowel during assembly, but the machine cut right through it when cutting the edge of the board. (the outer outline of the piece.) What’s more alarming after it was on its last passes to finish cutting out the outline (3/4ths thick birch ply) it just veered .25 inch south and started cutting all 3/4ths at the same time.
I’ve done the calibration work, its stepping correctly. I don’t think things are over heating, my work room is pretty cold…
I have since removed the wholes for the dowels so you wont see them on the design (figuring they were more trouble then they were worth) any more but you can see where they were supposed to be on the pics I took.
