Hello all. Not sure what I got myself into here but I bought this machine used. I know NOTHING about any of this. I’m a retired and took up basement woodworking. These machines have always intrigued me but I hope I’m not in over my head. It took almost two weeks to build a table & rearrange one whole end of my shop area to make a suitable work space for this unit. It’s been a struggle and I was thrilled when I could just jog it around. I figured surfacing was next so I followed the Youtube video Eddie made. I got the Intuwiz file and to my surprise I was able to load it and start the surface job. First pass was beautiful. Every pass after that left a ridge in the center of the pass and a lip in every pass next to it. I ordered the bit from Sienci and if I hold the cutting edge on a straight edge it only touches on the outer edges of the cutter and I can see space in the middle. I’m not sure how this could be the problem since the first cut was perfect. I’m attaching a picture and hope it helps. The bottom line is the surface is anything but flat.
I apologize in advance for my ignorance.
