Hi! I’m very very new, just installed my Shapeoko XXL, and while the initial installing and running went good, now I’m having some issues.
While trying to drill the holes in the wasterboard for some threaded inserts, after a couple of holes when the bit plunges, there’s a kicking sound after which the bit starts from a higher point. Therefore, it does not keep doing the holes as deep as it should.
I tried to address most of the things I read about Z axis slipping: Checked belt tension (seems quite tight to me), removed 1/2 springs (this actually helped, it could two a few more holes but then the same issues happens), and made sure as well that the entire X/Z axis plate is tight and running smoothly.
What else should I look into?
