How to set the “Minimum” position for Blade #5
If you get the error “Stall: Centerline 5-v25” during a setup, it can be because blade 5 is hitting the end stop. One possible reason this could be occurring is that the saw is out of calibration and the minimum position (the lowest possible position the centerline can go before hitting the end stop) needs to be recalibrated.
Step 1: To recalibrate the centerlines’ minimum position select “Saw Head 5” in the “Manual Controls” window and press the “Settings” button.
Step 2: On the Calibration tab for the “Centerline” for Blade 5 press the “Back” (left triangle symbol) button, which will move the head down, until the motor stalls out because it has hit the end stop.
Step 3: Press the “Forward” button and then the “Stop” button to move the centerline about 1/16th of an inch away from the end stop.
NOTE: The reason we move the saw 1/16th away from the end stop is so there is a small buffer between what the software thinks is the minimum position and what the actual minimum is, basically we don’t want to have the centerline hit the end stop if we can help it.
Step 4: Select the “Basic” tab at the top of the screen and press the button labeled “Set Minimum”.
Step 5: Press the “Save” button
Step 6: Restart the software by pressing the “X” at the top right of the screen.
That’s it, you have now updated the saw’s minimum centerline position for head #5.
