I just completed a bench repair that had risers doweled in the bottom to adjust the height. ( Organ Bench) at our church. I used 1/4 inch Whiteside bit RU210...

Re: Spindle speed bug?

I have a Shark HD4 also. The spindle on my setup is started by myself on the controller before running the g-code. The Pendant will not start or run the controller as far as I know. I am using Post Processor CNCShark-USB NewArcs(inch)(*.tap) and if that is what you are using you must turn on the spi...

Re: Stopping a cut and going back to 0.0.0

I have a Shark HD4 and have found that to be a problem also. If you use pause in your Pendant you can continue with the carve, if you use stop you can go back to you starting point, and start the carve from the beginning. I have found that I aways use the bottom left corner as my start point for mos...

Re: Mother's Day Project

Thank-you Michael and Rebecca,

You both have made a huge impact on my CNC wood projects. You both are major factors in my decision to continue to upgrade my Aspire, and make the program usable to me.

Keep up the good work! I look forward to each new project and carving them.

Re: Z zero question

I also have a Shark HD4 and I zero Z after tool change by using the pendant, by jogging over to spot that I previously zeroed at. I use the zero plate most of the time and do not change x or y settings, after zeroing Z with the plate setting button and return to your old Y,X, and new Z zero using th...
