Items to Clarify

  • Collets: What size are the four collets?
  • Mach4: Verify that instructions are correct.
  • Work Coordinate System: Setup is mentioned at two places. Eliminate one.
  • Spindle Speed in Mach4: Do we want the manual spindle speed to match the value in Mach4 (from Vcarve) so we have a reference value for future runs & so we will have proper speed when (someday) Mach4 controls spindle motor speed? Not practical since the user will manually adjust speed as needed. Should user go back into Vcarve & set value to the best speed from the run?
