I just got my Shapeoko a month ago and having issues. Yesterday the bit gouged into the wood after running for 45 minutes. Now today I load up a file and the bit gouged right away.
I have a Pro XXL with Bitsetter and BitZero.
This is the sequence of the operation.
Initialized the machine.
Router goes to the back of machine
Comes to the front center
Changed to BitZero Pin
Router runs over to Bitsetter
Comes back to front center
Manually move over to BitZero using CM
Set XYZ zero
Router moves to front center
CM asks to change bit to the correct one for the job.
After change the router goes over to the Bitsetter and measures
Machine gouges about 1/8" into board
I read where a couple other people was having the same issue but didn’t see the fix.
I only change the bit when CM ask for it.
