    I believe what you're trying to do is violate the terms and conditions from Vectric. That's really not too cool. If you're too cheap to pay Vectric their just rewards, then you should find a product...

    You probably need a replacement computer. Weird problem though. If you've got another computer you can try, I suggest doing that before throwing the baby out with the bathwater. If you do need a new...

    Ya, it's going to be a keyboard problem. I suggest buying a wireless keyboard. They are a lot easier to use around the machine.

    It could also be that your gantry has been torqued. I suggest checking the squareness of your table again. The simplest and most accurate method is to measure diagonal corners. It's far better than...

    I don't have an ATC so I can't answer for sure...

    Did you adjust your zero plate when you skimmed the table? Do the end mills in your ATC carousel have to be re-zeroed?

    You could do it as a solid by using an indexer as the hold down. Once a side is finished, manually rotate the fixture with the MB (move B Axis) command and do the next side.

    >> "keyboard commands to "STOP" seem to be mere suggestions to stop."

    Well, without more information, a valuation is variable. Important stuff such as the date of manufacture, pictures of the control box and unit itself and the Z height would be useful.

    It's likely a PRT seeing as how it's 15 years old (at least the router is). A picture would answer that question.
