First actual cut. I had a few mishaps, but it ended up turning out better than I would have expected (kind of rushed through the calibration process). First two days of cutting I would not leave the machine’s side. Lucky I didn’t because the motor coupler for the z axis slipped and it started to cut through my project (did not tighted the coupler lock screw onto the the flat part of the motor shaft).
After I realized just how long the cut was going to take I put my daughter’s old baby monitor in the garage to keep an eye on it. I finally understand my wife’s paranoia when my daughter was a new born. " What if something happens while I am not watching, or, even worse, what of I am watching and am not fast enough to save the project?"
Maybe it is just me that is getting ulcers watching a 20 hour plus cut, but I was thinking it would be a good to add a manual switch that would not allow the router to traverse until it reaches the designated traverse height. I have no coding knowledge or I would try it
Also I started to wonder about my utility bill. Has anyone seen a huge jump in utility costs after a 20 plus hour cut.
Thanks for all of your input in advance.
