When I cut .25 (.252)D holes with a .25 flat fluted bit, on the very last step/pass it seems to skip a step and renders the rest of the cuts on the project not deep enough.
I’m pretty sure the belt is taut as I do not think it’s the belt skipping a tooth. If you were to jog the Z-axis upward past it’s limit, the motor seems to skip (or ratchet), not the belt. This is what I think is happening at the bottom of these holes. I’ve heard what it sounds like when the belt skips, this isn’t that sound.
I just played with the machine as I’m typing this, I held the z plate while jogging the machine downward and the motor skipped. Is it possible the motor isn’t strong enough? I can’t see that being an issue because I feel like this cutter and router should cut through plywood like butter.
I’m at a loss.
