    I take it you are getting this on the calibration steps on a dowel?

    Your number do look like they is a big difference for the old and new. How many times did you try it and did you check your head pressure?

    The jig calibration is very finicky. Make sure the jig is tight against the squaring plate and clamped down as tight as possible under the head. Remove and reclamp until the calibration falls within range.

    I have had the same problem but, I thought it was either me or my machine was wearing out. I did exactly as Bergerud stated in post #5 and eventually it works.

    When it finally does work, subsequent calibrations seem okay until I remove the jig from the machine.
