    Now it is fixed down, yes that's shown there's nothing to worry about.

    Don't see the point as the height of the bed is adjustable, and doing that would mean the Z-axis would generally operate further down, which is weaker unless you compensate by putting the bed higher but I suspect it is already at the limit? Also if the collet just clearly the Z-axis could get in the way/collide with a large 3D part when cutting low down.

    Ah ah thought it was strange having all that Z axis travel and so little clearence didn't know the bed was adjustable, doesn't look it from the Vid. I should probably payed more attention to the rest of the thread!! . . . . ME BAD.:confused: . . In that case forget what I said.:rofl:

    Very Funny

    I broke my camera the other week and only have a Car Video camera (the one's of ebay for 20.00) and it's ok for the quick up load and plus I can't read Chinese to change the date settings.

    I have a video camera but no cables to get it from video to computer (it's Hi8 I think) I have ordered a set of cables today from ebay

    well I've screwed the Machine down now and just waiting to pick up some corner brackets from Jonathan on Saturday My software has arrived so I should get that running tonight

    So I should be cutting by Sunday/Monday
