I finally got around to implementing a tangential cutter on my CNC Router.
For the most part it works perfectly. However, I ran into a problem today. While cutting, the A-axis decided to do a complete 360 while in the work piece, thus breaking the blade.
Here is some code. The problem area is in red.

I broke out my g-code book to understand the I's and J's, but I have no idea how to fix this problem.
I am using a circular cutter. I have mach 3 to pick up 1" when an angle changes more than 45 degrees. I use BobCad to create my G-code.
