I’m doing a large deep pocket in Aluminum. I’m at about 1.25" deep in a 1.5" pocket. I’m running a coated .25" endmill. As it finishes the pass and pulls up to go back to center of the pocket the Z axis slips down. I’ve removed all dust collection parts, tightened the idler wheel and snugged up all the track wheels. Z axis seems snug, but free moving.
I thought the upcut endmill was catching as it tried to pull up so I even changed my shape to keep it .01 away from the existing surface. Still slipped after a couple passes.
Yes, I ordered the Z-Plus today, but I’m not sure how long until that gets here.
