    Another thing -

    Watch that little rubber O-Ring on the board tracking roller. It will get worn, will crack, and eventually fall off. You are lost without it.

    I keep a supply on hand, and replace the O-Ring when it starts cracking.

    If you use a Shop-Vac to clean up Dust and Chips in or aound your Machine while carving
    --Please!! -- Be sure to keep it away from the Circuit Boards and Key Pad side of your Carver

    Keep the machine grounded while using your shop vac by laying a hand on the metal of the machine.

    If you are uncertain about a particular function/feature, run a small test carve to see how it performs before throwing in an expensive board. It may add some cut time, but at least you will know what to expect when you start a big project.

    Hey Jerry, or anyone else who may know, but you said to watch the little o-ring on the brass roller, does anyone know the exact dimentions of the rubber o-ring? How about a good place to buy a hand full of them....

    You should be able to find them nearly anywhere. If you have the sandpaper belts, the correct side is 5/16 ID x 7/16 OD. The rubber belts use a different size. MT just had a recent post with the size for rubber belts but I dont recall which thread it was in.

    Edit: I found MTs' post...

    I just rercieved a new machine 9 (C version), and the owners manuel wasn't there. I tried to use the manuel on the comp. but for some reason it only has a few pages. My question is do I check the head pressure the same as the older machines and what should the pressure be?
    Thanks
    Don
