I have been playing with my SO4 for a couple months now. Everything has been going perfect without any hiccups until today. I was about 15 minutes into a standard pocket cut with an 1/8"d end mill on 1/8" MDF workpiece.
I was reading next to my machine when I suddenly noticed a small black bold on the workpiece (the only reason it didn’t get sucked up by the shop vac was because I need to clean it… suction was a tad lower than usual haha).
I paused the SO4 immediately after noticing. There was only a subtle “bumping” sound but everything seemed to be spinning in the router accordingly and it was still cutting accurately. I hesitantly restarted the router. It started off fine, but began making the bumping noise once again. I let it run for maybe 10 seconds to see if it would play out but it seemed to start to vibrate. I stopped the program. It seemed there was a little smoke coming out of the router (I have the standard Carbide router purchased through carbide 3d). Any suggestions for a fix before I start tinkering away would be greatly appreciated
