    Default Masterwood 317

    Machine just started inadvertently routing at the wrong depth.I home the machine and plow the top and bottom of a wall end for a cabinet. the route starts at a certain depth. Not necessarily the depth on the program. if the program says .25" in Z, it may start at 0.125" the farther it goes, the deeper it goes. when it lifts and moved down to the other end of the panel. it will be @ .10" deeper at the end of the second route than at the beginning of the 1st route.Reset the machine and it repeats the process again. may start at @ .180" deep this time. It zeros itself without error. was thinking encoder, just not sure

    Is the spindle on an air cylinder. Might be an air leak?

    With ALL machinery off, i hear no air leak. once a routing operation is complete on one panel, and the next part is ran. it will continue on the lowering path, from the depth of the last route, after each part. regardless of time elapse. if there is a 3rd operation, such as a 1/2" back plow.It will be .25" deeper than the .25" plows it too will be off in depth, by the same amount as the last operations' ending

    Gerry Thanks, That's a possibility, but i would suspect it would at least be .25" deep, and then a bit more due to any air leak. but its commanded to .25" deep and it may route at 0.126" and go from there

    Sounds like a mechanical issue, but I really have no idea.
