fan trouble shooting

I have installed a new router in this cnc, noticing that the fan at the top of the router is not running. Shouldn't this fan be running as long as the machine is cutting?

re-surface tool length sensor.

Over time my tool length sensor has become pitted in the very center of the hard plastic pad, from use over the life of this machine. I am wondering if it would have any effect on the accuracy of the sensor if I were to sand the surface of the sensor

thank you.

Re: trouble shooting a tool length sensor

No, I have a weeky cleaning rutine for the entire mechine. Another trait of these errors, when the typewriter is in position above the sensor it will assend to the Z boundry rather then decesnd to the sensor.

override tool auto slection (closest diamiter)

Noticed that my cnc has stoped using the 3/8" bit, and defaults to the 1/4" for all pocketing opperations. We use pocket and tennon construction in this shop, assinging the 3/8" to cut the tennons and the 1/4" for the pockets. I would like to find a way to set so that it does aut...
