Alright, so I bought an x carve used, brought it home and set it up.
Calibrating the X and Y axis was pretty easy and so was the Z axis once I did it a few times. When I calibrated the Z axis the $102=50.5, so at that point everything to correct.
Using the Z probe, I go through the setup and as soon as I lift the Z probe to the bit to verify the connection, the $102 changes to $102=188.976. It has done this several times and it’s always this number.
I finish the Z probe setup, not knowing that the $102 has changed for some reason and the start the carve. The x carve goes to the X and Y Home and drives the bit all the way into the workpiece and into the waist board.
I’m at a loss at for what could be changing the settings during the job setup. I will say that I can manually set the Z height a paper thickness above the work piece and the carve is successful. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yes, the machine setup. I’m not sure how often I need to do it. Do I run the setup each time I log in to the x-crave or easel? Will it remember the settings from the last time I used it even after I shut off the computer?
