    I got it to work on the first try but I don't know how. I got lost when it said jog the X using the lower arrows, I didn't use the touch holes at all. all I did was move the bit all the over to the far side and hit enter, need help but I carved my first one using the UCB.Click image for larger version.

    The reason you did not need the touch holes was because the carving was not deeper than 1/2". In this case the machine does not bother to measure the board thickness. Now for the bad news. The touch holes are on the wrong side. The holes are for when the bit thinks it is bobbing between the board and the sliding plate. Without those holes, the bit will stall onto the side of the UCB. When you do make the holes in the other side, make them nearer the inside. (The holes would be in the center of the side if the side was 5/8" wide.)

    When you do a project deeper than 1/2", you will have to follow the instructions and jog to line up one of the new holes.
