BIL's been working with router and a program that cuts faces out from a BMP picture. While cutting it seemed to loss its settings for 0 and by the end it was 1/2" out alignment. After some fiddling and checking he figured out that the picture program was asking it to cut it at a high resolution that the machine isn't capable of which is .05. After reseting everything and getting the resolution down to .05 seemed to work fine.
3-15-08 Installed limit switchs and BIL is making up a hold down system that should cover the whole area and any size materal.
