I am using a Makita router, and it is as far down in the mount as possible.
Pardon my terminology. I should have been more accurate and said initialization instead of homing. They may be independent from each other, but my machine will go through the homing process, then ask me to insert a tool, then continue to probe. There doesn’t seem to be a way to cancel the probing routine, so when my machine initializes, it goes through the homing AND probing process every time. It will probe whether I click continue or close the window with the dialog that asks to insert a tool. If no tool is present, then it will bottom out (and the motor make a terrible noise) and I will get an error that says the homing process failed.
After successful initialization, I can jog my machines z-axis as far down as I can and still have 7/8" space between the bottom of the collet on the router and the waste board strips. Since the magnet for the BitSetter probe is pretty much level with the waste board, I have to set my tool at least an inch out from the collet. Is that in-line with what everyone else is needing to do?
I have set my machines configuration based on the defaults of the machine type that I have. But for my own sanity, what should the XYZ values be in the settings?
