So when the 60° vbit finished its path it stopped and moved for tool change. After changing to 1/4" mill the machine moved to position where the vbit finished. In the middle of the number 4 on my wooden piece, .200" above the pocket's bottom. Because the pocket is .250" the mill skimmed the top of the 4.
When I changed the z settings to .400" there was enough clearance that the bit was now higher above not only the pocket but the whole wooden piece
