Re: S2 offsets cut in either X or Y axis.

Hi Barry, Your machine is losing steps. Looks like only 1 axis is doing it though. Try turning up the potentiometer for that axis a little more. Were the feedrate suggestions you obtained from this forum for your setup or something different? (stock motors and spindle?) Stock motors, Makita RT0701c...

S2 offsets cut in either X or Y axis.

I have a problem that I'm not sure how to approach. I ran a program today, after running the same program yesterday without any problem, but now it seems like the S2 hangs for a sec on X or Y at some point of the program (tried like 5 times) and then offsets the cut. here is an example: Green is the...

Makita RT0701 Material feed info

Hi, I wonder if anyone ran a benchmark for different material feed parameters of a shapeoko with the Makita RT0701 on it. the wiki has some data on DW660 but even with that, its only for 1/8" bits and I want 1/4. I am guessing you can go deeper and faster with a RT0701, but I have no clue. my intere...

Rigidity for Shapeoko

Hi,

Has anyone ever change the GT belts on a shapeoko 2 with M8 bolts like the Z axis upgrade?

Barry.
