    Use the Troubleshooting Tab in CONTROL to test.

    Needs good electrical conductivity between magnet > whatever is in between > plate. Coated endmills may not be conductive, and the magnet usually makes better contact on the collet nut than the bit itself. Use the Troubleshooting tab to test - lift plate up to touch endmill while watching the Probe indicator on the Troubleshooting tab.

    Some nice shots of the machine parts setup and something being cut? This will surely provide some perspective to the community
