Still breaking bits... Jump start from a mid run stop...
« on: February 06, 2007, 10:24:06 PM »
I'm using very small diameter bits (1/16 and smaller) to cut out my widgets with. So far I've snapped off about $50 bucks worth. Lubrication helped allot, slowing down the feed rate helped... but... If I stop the run, and then restart it, it goes into over drive. I had it happen with a 1/8th bit and it actually survived something like a 50in per min rate when it jumped. Of course, the aluminum I was cutting looked like it had been ripped apart, not milled. When this happens with the smaller bits, *poink* more money down the drain. Is this a bug in the software? Anyone else run across this?

What version of Mach are you running?

R2.00.044 is the latest and will probably be the best as most bugs have been ironed out.
