    Yeah, there's way to many ShopBot postp's in the list that cause confusion. If your old one worked fine before, load it in and you should be back to normal.

    What are the temps in your shop? Just for fun, leave the control box door open and place a fan blowing directly into the box. Possibly a bad solder spot that opens up when warm or other component.
