  • Spoilboard issues


    Looking for suggestions on using Mick Martins spoilboard program. Everything seems good until I hit enter and the machine starts, goes to the upper corner but then is about .21 above the spoil board at every try. Any suggestions what I am doing wrong? Thanks Ray

    When you manually type in a z0 command does the tool stop .21 above surface too?

    Do you have a green box next to the z window?

      No green box, is blue. When I start bit is on the surface of the spoilboard, then hit enter, raises then goes to upper corner and then bit hovers .21 or .25 over the spoil board.

        Doesn't it say it's hitting a Z-limit? If so, jog the bit to the spoilboard, type g49 and then run the tap file. G49 WILL REMOVE AND LIMIT CHECKS. So make sure you're not trying to go too deep...
