Newbie needs help

Post by Preacher » Thu Sep 17, 2020 5:11 pm

hi guys,
First off, glad I'm here...just poking around, I have already found some useful tips...thank you.

Now, I need some help figuring out what is going on.

I'm running a simple outside contour cut on 3/4" maple Plywood. Im using an Amana 1/4" spiral bit. Depth per pass has been my standard .060...

Every time the cnc makes a new pass around my cut, its making a new path. I have tried reducing my rate per pass, reducing my depth per pass, all to no avail. I have checked the bolts, belts, and everything else I can think of.

Below is a link to the video I took showing what's happening

Any help would be great...wasting too much wood
