CN5.60 metric ramp-in

Postby Matt Snowball » Wed, Dec 08 2010, 10:08AM

Dado ramp-in distance appears too short by a large factor. I'm guessing in the region of 25.4 times too short

Anyone else got this, or am I doing something wrong ?

Thanks

Matt

Matt, our Dado ramp in length is set at 6". Not sure in mm, but it didn't change with the updated CN.

Thanks for the reply John - this may be a metric-only issue.

If I want the machine to create an actual ramp-in length of 150mm, I need to enter a value of, say around 3750mm into CN. The fact that this is a factor of around 25 leads me to suspect a mm-inch conversion.

I have upgraded directly from CN5.48 to CN5.60, if that helps narrow it down.

Thanks

Matt
