Cutting issues need help

My machine occasionally will make deep cut and ruining my project what do I need to do

Is the bit slipping? That can be caused by sawdust packing up inside the collet or by a bit whose shank isn’t true to dimensions. The first can cause the bit to slip down during a cut but the second would typically be a bad height from the start.

Hey Rand,

possibly loose bit in collet, or loose Z Ball Screw Coupler

I agree with @JimHatch & @Aiph5u. I’ve had my bit slip and cause a deeper cut. I take the collet out and blow it out with some air to clean it out.
