View Full Version : ShopSabre 4896 Z axis fail.

I did some searching but could not find the same problem.

My machine has been damn near flawless for 6 years now.
Just started a disturbing trend.
It will be cutting and then the Z axis will fail and let the spindle fall into the parts I am making.
Drills all the way in and lets the spindle sit on the material.

Has anybody ever encountered this problem? It does it with zero warning. All of a sudden it's just sitting on the parts, ruining it and the bit sometimes. Thank you.
