Z probe use

Does anybody out there a video or step by step for how to set up the Z probe? When I do it, after I touch the gold probe to the bit, I hit start. The cnc goes where it should, but it does not go all the way down. It makes the right moves, but it does not go down to the wood. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi Ted,
It certainly sounds like you’re probing correctly, but there are other factors that effect that process.

What model CNC is this? (if Xcarve is it the new linear rail Z axis or the old vwheels and the circle belt at the top)

Also is your probe the Inventables default thickness of 14.99mm or is it a thicker one?
