I have a simple job in the flip jig. I have already cut it out once using the g-code files so i know theres nothing wrong with them (although i let my mac fall asleep so I was going for attempt #2)
I move the cutter into position, have the file loaded. I get about 5mins in when suddenly the spindle jolts to a sudden stop. Not sure what happened but I decide to get another piece of material and try again (attempt #3).
To be sure i power down the machine, close all the programs and restart them. I take the cutter out and put it back in just to be sure it was in the collet correctly.
When i press begin, the usual happens, asks to insert cutter, does tool measure etc then just as the job is about to start the spindle motor whirrs up but only for about half a second (hardly does a single revolution) and stops. It’s as if something is preventing it from spinning but I cannot see anything that could be the issue.
Has anyone experienced this or got any ideas to try?
Thanks in advance!
