Consistency tests needed.


FAQ


I have a project that has alignment marks on them and wondering if there is a way on the Red laser to move the laser head manually either by the arrows or coordinates so I can check my overlay?

There’s no way to position Red. You can do that with Blue. I do alignment in one of two ways: 1) by laying a sheet of paper on the bed and slicing it with 90% speed. 2) by cutting out a frame jig before hand.

The jig or paper lets me know where to put the item I’m cutting. If I need ~2mm precision, the paper works. Less than that, take the time to build the jig.


'Insufficient flow from air', WTF? Turn on air.

Cleaning Clean the ways, wheels, & leadscrew & re-lube weekly. Z jitter can be caused by debris in the ways. If not that, it can be a worn lead nut.

FAQ

Sawstop weekly cleaning The Sawstop tilt & height can get jammed. It can be cleaned from the access door on the side. Depending on where it is jammed, it may require reaching in & cleaning it by hand.

Miter Saw blockage Turn off the saw, start the dust collector, reach back & pull the debris blocking the dust.
