Consistency tests needed.


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.

Z jitter: That can happen when it jams due to debris in the ways or the leadscrew. Clean the ways, wheels, and leadscrew. It's one thing that can cause stalling. There are other possible causes Leadnut was worn out- but it's been replaced: mar 20, 2019

Z jitter tests: The leadscrew and ways were reasonably clean and the leadscrew had some lube. I cleaned the ways, wheels, and cleaned off the old lube on the leadscrew and re-lubed.

FAQ If not cleaned weekly, 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.
