Hello everyone! I need help with something weird that my CNC mill is doing. Whenever it's cutting a part, the y-axis will suddenly decided to jump full speed (higher than the feed rate in the g-code) and attain an offset of up to an inch, and then the machine will just keep on cutting the part like nothing happened...except now everything in the y-direction is way off. Mach3 even thinks that the original tool path is being traced out and everything is normal.
Specs are as follows:
Minitech Mini Mill 2
Hobby CNC EZ control board
It's only been an issue with the y-axis, all other axes are behaving themselves. I'm thinking the issue has something to do with the control board...I understand the one I'm using is not exactly top of the line. Anyone had a similar problem in the past? Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.
Here's a video showing pretty much everything I just said:
