    Hi all,

    I need help, my day just keeps getting worse. I’ve gone from a perfectly working machine to nothing but headaches.

    My first lot of troubles started When GRBL would not set my feed rate to cut at 1200mm/min, which wasn’t too bad as I could slow it down via manually reducing the feed. Since I completed the first cut through som aluminium the probe keeps showing as activated and my spindle (connected through the vfd won’t switch off after a cut.

    ive checked continuity and everything seems ok. I’ve even re-flashed the board with the latest GRBL without any luck (however this did sort the feed rate out)
    Has anyone got any ideas about this?

    thanks

    Use an update, I’ve stripped down my machine, and disconnected everything from my bar£ to see if I could find out why the prob is no working, even though I have nothing connected except power probe is still showing an alarm

    Has anyone got any idea what is causing this or how I can solve this?

    thanks

    Hi Rob, post your GRBL settings so we can see whats up.
    If cutting aluminum make sure no chips are getting on the board, and clean it with compressed air just to be sure, also clean out the USB plug.
    Cheers
