    Default C2 not working correctly.

    Hello all. My CNC machine is giving me troubles while trying to C2. It comes all the way down to the Z-plate, touches, and says that it has been C2. I start up my program and it doesn't C2. The bit doesn't touch the wood. I have to stop the program and C2 it all over again and then it actually works. Any Help?

    Does the bit almost touch the wood? If it is very close you may need to make an edit for the thickness of you Z-plate. In the Shopbot Console, under Tools, select Shopbot setup, the 3rd page is for setting up the Z-Zero plate. You will need a micrometer to accurately measure the thickness of your Z-plate. Save your settings and run the C2 program again.
