Vcarve letter problems

Post by dcoalc70 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 10:32 pm

Hi,

I am having problems with carbide motion letter forming.
Beside the letter H , the letter N and the letter y are somewhat miss formed. All were used as Capital letters.

Thanks

Don

Thanks Will,

I tightened up the belts and machine ran error free.
