Author Topic: G83 Peck drill does not drill to specified depth. Subsequent holes even less  (Read 36 times)

I'm using Mach3, Gecko G540, on a Taig mill, drilling 5 holes using G83 as my material is quite soft and welds to the drill quite easily.  Hole depth is .75"  I set z0 with the drill bit about .005 above the work.  The first hole is about .6" deep and each successive hole is shallower by a significant amount.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
