Re: Z axis issues - either too deep or too shallow

Thanks. I've tried limiting the Z speeds using GRBL controller and also with a recam in Makercam. Same problem. Are you saying the issue is a mechanical limitation on the Z axis, or a software issue? I've also noticed another, possibly related, bug with the Z axis. After I hit the cancel button in U...

Z axis issues - either too deep or too shallow

I see other people are having similar issues, but I didn't want to hijack another thread. I'm having issues with my Z axis where the mill either is told to plunge too deep or in other cases too shallow. I've running the stable GRBL v8 and the gcode was generated with makercam with an inkscape svg. I...

Re: Source for 1/4" collet for DW660?

Just an update. I was wandering through Lowes the other day and noticed they sell a 3 pack of collets and the nut for $10. It is RotoZip branded, but seems to be identical to the Dewalt ones... So, a slightly better deal. http://www.lowes.com/pd_398862-353-CN1_4294607824%2B4294965141__?productId=385...

Re: Source for 1/4" collet for DW660?

Yeah I figured that was the story. It just seems crazy that a replacement collet would be ~20% of the cost of a new tool! For what it's worth, amazon has the 1/8" replacement collets for a bit cheaper: http://www.amazon.com/Dewalt-Replacement-COLLET-389243-00-DW660/dp/B009L32RKS/ Thanks for the acco...

Source for 1/4" collet for DW660?

I need a replacement 1/4" collet for the Dewalt DW660 trim router. I see amazon has them, but they are $10 each! Anyone know of a cheaper source shipped to the US?

Also, I'm new here so, hello Shapeoko world!

Thanks
