This may be a stupid question, but should I use the prob to calibrate a 1/32 drill bit? Or would it be wise to manually set the xyz axis? Just bought my first 1/32 drill bit to cut out some inlays for my first guitar build, and wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t snap a 40 dollar drill bit.
For 1/32" bits my go to is ebay. They sell name brand ones for making holes in circuit boards for cheap. I think I paid less than $10 for a 5 pack. Like Derek I probe all 3 axis with a 1/4" bit or rod and then reprobe the Z axis after the bit change.
I probe all 3 axis when using a 1/32" bit. The machine stops immediately once electrical contact is made. Never had a problem. In fact I’ve never broken a 1/16" or 1/32" bit even though I bought 10 packs of each off of ebay.
