I’m cutting out a wierd shape inside a box, for which the stock is 1.625" thick.
This is cleary too much for a #201 or #251 to deal with so, after I cut out the hole, I switched to a longer bit to cut the workpiece out of the stock.
Because the original toolpath was set up for the #201, which I realised was too short, I used the Change Tool option to do just that using a bit with 62mm flues, and the BitSetter did it’s thing bringing the tool back to front and centre waiting for the Go! I hadn’t changed anything regarding the X, Y and X axies, so didn’t think it would be necessary to use the BitZero.
Except the bit didn’t rise up enough and ploughed straight into the stock - fortunately I was quick enough to stop everything before damaging the workpiece.
As the stock hadn’t moved and the BitSetter did it;s magic, why did this happen, please?
