I am skeptical of anything over 1.5kW on 120VAC. The 2.2kW will draw 20Amps or more at peak depending upon the efficiency of the VFD. Generally the cheaper the electronics the less efficient they are. Most household breakers are 15A with wire sized for 15A based on length of run from the panel. If y...
I concur with Will’s comments. With the Super PID you can control your Spindle on/off and speeds through software/G code. It also allows you to dial in the same speed for each bit, which I have found extends bit life and also produces a consistent cut once you have speeds and feeds figured out. You ...
Why not use Work Coordinate System to achieve what you are trying to do? The machine will Home to right rear, your WCS X0 Y0 can be set anywhere in your machine travel, but machine coordinates will be a negative number in reference to the machine homing position. Movement commands will be in referen...

I see your correlation and it appears repeatable. How much deflection are you experiencing? Do you experience the same issue when doing a pocket cut? For example using a 1/4” bit for a 5/16” wide pocket with multiple passes? Have you checked the belt idler pulley bearings on the back of the X axis p...

In regards to your error, check to see if one of your switches is still trigger. Machine should pull off 5mm of each axis after homing. WCS is great, however CM does not make it easy to understand. Try Chilipeppr or Intelli-G-Code senders to help you get the basics down. Once you see it working you ...
