    Default air drill on PRT

    any one out there running an air drill on a PRT(2005 vintage)?
    when line boring cabinet and closet panels I am losing position on the XY and Z. the larger the file the greater the offset. ShopBot thinks its feeding back to the processer and have add a diode to the power supply for the drill. That did not fix the problem.
    Any thoughts?

    Is it a standard or Alpha?
    I was told standards can not use an air drill or they will loose step.
