Hi, thank you for looking.

I purchased a Chinese 6040 cnc router and for the past 4 months I have tried over and over again to cut a single piece of anything. I am at a complete loss and I don't know where else to turn to for help. I don't know any one that I could even pay for the help as I would if I had to. I have watched the help videos so many times and I have the machine set up according to the book and all the axis's operating like they should and I zero the Z and set the X and Y axis's as shown. All I ever get when I start cycle is it either just drills straight down or moves to position and does nothing and it doesn't cut.

I created a very simple circle pocket using cam software and even when I cycle start that, the bit just goes straight down. I am at a loss what to do next. I would gratefully appreciate your advise.

I have attached simple circle pocket I made but nothing works not even the sample gcode that comes with mach3.

Cheers,

Craig.
