I know this is a DIY and a work in progress.
But here are a couple of things that really frustrate me.
- The calibration changes.
I can get a project zeroed in run three or four similar projects no problem. Then change to a new project and all my calibration mysteriously is wrong and my machine no longer cuts square or to scale.
- Screws constantly come loose.
Yes I know I need lock tite. This morning a whole another set came loose.
the wheel bearings on the standard lock ring pop off sometimes- destroying a cut and expensive wood. A piece of saw dust or a dent in surface material is enough to cause chains to slacken just enough the wheels pop off to the side.
The z axis.
The z axis screws up every single day. I have applied many fixes from bushings, screw tightening, bungee cords etc. But the zaxis I need to replace.
- The work area.
On a 4x8 area I might get a 2x6 accurate cut. I have only been able to accurately cut or engrave 12x72" signs or smaller.
- Ground Control- just messes up.
On ground control I get freezes, glitches, time outs, and some times will not allow me to redefine zero or home.
Honestly when I see what others are creating and I keep failing at this, and I bought it to help me improve my woodshop I am becoming very demoralized.
