I just picked up a star SH16, and got everything working except the bar feed shots the bar out litterally.. lol.. What is normally used to stop the bar? I was guessing on using the drill attachment with a reference point, and then moving the chuck up to grip and pull back, to get a repeatable Z setting on the bar feed. am I over thinking this? Never rna a swiss part comes out perfect, when I manually set my stock for the start of the program.
cutoff blade holds the bar stock just make sure your bar feed follow up low enough to not defect / break the blade
