    It sounds like you have a bad adapter. Can you afford to wait for a new bit? Do you have other bits?

    Yes, waiting for a bit is a bit disappointing but I can do it, have you ever been in this situation before? Do they charge you for a replacement bit do you know?

    Are u sure that wasn't it's original placement? Are u sure it slipped. Each adapter can be pressed at different places. Doesn't effect carving. Cause it measures bit each time.

    Did the carving depth get shallower as it carved? Likely, the way is was pressed is just further down bit than your other one.

    It has been my experience that bits go the other way. A loose bit comes out. I may be wrong, but I think Connie is right and that may be the way it was. Maybe you could mark it with a felt pen and do a test carve to see if it moves some more.
