Quick question - at the ShopBot at the Makerspace they have a requirement that if you’re the first one on the machine for the day that you have to run a spindle warm up routine. I think it runs for 5 or 8 minutes. Haven’t been in months so I don’t remember if it steps up through the RPM range or not. I’m not sure what the history with it is, it’s a script on the machine - unclear if it is factory or something the Makerspace did.
Does anyone here warm up their router or spindle with no load before using it for the day? If so, what is your procedure?
