    I think you need to post the project. Some of this does not make sense to me either. If I recall, when carving a project of depth less than 1/2", the machine does not even bother to try and measure...

    Try making the board 1/8" proud of the sled. The rear roller switch is not clicking when the roller drops onto the sled. The 1/32" is not enough.

    The problem could be that the rear roller is not switching when it comes off of the board onto the carrier. Maybe the head is clamped down a little too much.

    I am sorry that I have not replied earlier. The carving depth is determined solely by the touch to the surface. If the machine is having trouble bobbing down the hole, I would check that the black...

    Maybe his cut path arc went across the board. A cut path must separate the board into two pieces. So, it has to either be a closed curve with an inside and an outside, or a cut across the board.

    Make sure you bolted the drive belt assemblies down between the alignment tabs. Maybe the keyboard side of one of them is up on a tab. Otherwise, I guess it would be the level head problem.

    If my memory serves, the machine measures the position of the rotary jig plates and not the dowel itself.

    I do not think it was the feather. It appears to be a change in depth. My guess would be that something physically moved during the carve.

    It was the ER20 spindle that I had made. It was not too big. In fact it is the same dimensions as the CT. It is what I use. The ER11 that I also had made was not a spindle but an adapter which fit...

    Were you using a 1/16" long carving bit? These bits bend into the grain and do exactly what I see in your picture. With the rotary, the carving is with the grain as opposed to normal carving which is...

    I agree, all in the fun of a challenge. I hope it carves ok. Note that you could add more detail to the engine. Parts that stick out the sides (but are still under the 3 inch diameter) could be added...

    Nice, I see you got the same wave artifacts. I wonder if they carve. Probably.

    If the machine is behaving erratically during the start up, it may simply be a software issue. Have you tried re-formatting and re-flashing the card?

    The machine does the board thickness routine when the carving/cutting is more than 1/2" deep. It is then that you have to jog to line up a touch hole. After the bob down the hole, the machine will...

    Another method is to cover areas which you do not want the bit to touch with 0.00 depth carve regions. (The whole region must be 0.00 depth region.) The bit will "jump" over the region.
