So I have the recommended Rigid router but have never used routers before so I’m having problems getting my build up and running. I’m on the calibrate z axis part however when I install my bit adaptor/bit it seems to be extremely low (like beyond just being a fully extended z axis) it pushes the sled up about 1 1/2 inches to 2 inches. First I want to make sure I have the bit/adaptor inserted correctly and then I want to find out what I’m doing wrong. When I raise the z axis it makes noise and spins but doesnt seem to be doing anything to the actual bit height.
I put in the adaptor like this where the skinny side goes through the top or outward facing piece of the nut and then slide in the bit to about a 1/4 inch from the cutting piece. The adaptor goes all the way down till the collet stops it at the lip.
