Hi there, I’m new to CNC routers and have bought a Mostics 3018 pro to learn on. It came with Candle but I couldn’t get to grips with that so I’m trying out Easel. Last week it was working just fine but this week the Y axis is going about 1.5 inch off track for no discernible reason.
It started when I put in a 1/4 inch 60 degree V carve bit for a project and the spindle went down too fast and too deep, burning a black hole in my wood, no matter what speed and feed setting I put it on. I changed back to the original 1/8 inch bit that came with the machine and the depth/speed is now fine but the carve comes forward too much no matter where I position the wood.
The spindle works just as it’s told when I jog it and I’ve made sure the wood is secure and straight. There is nothing blocking the X/Y/Z axis or machine bed. I’ve also unplugged/replugged it, tried a different USB port and reset the machine in Easel.
Any advise for a newbie would be welcome. Thank you
