I tried cutting another part today and the cuts were shifting to the Y+ 7mm half way through the part for some reason. I thought maybe a belt slipped so I ran the part again, same thing. Ran the G-code again, same. No clue??? Going to re-spec the cuts I guess.

What kind of cam software do you use?

Sorry cant help ya. Don't try and ghetto fix it, find the problem fix it proper. God forbid it ever happens again, you'll know exactly what to do.

I started from scratch and re-CAMed the part. Seemed to work... I guess we'll just never know.

What size tool were you cutting with? Are all chains defined for the propper side of the geometry. You could check that cutter comp was on for all chains. Just a thought. Looks great though, keep at it!!

I started a stem the other day for my final project in metal shop. It still has a lot of work to go, but shouldn't be too hard. the only problem is the metal we had is a little small so im going have to use small bolts to clamp it Facepalm Maybe this one will be more for show. Here it is so far:

You can still get away with M6 bolts.

My NS quark uses some tiny little bolts, so I think you'll be fine, providing its a good fit on the steer tube/the gap between stem and front plate isn't too big. Looks very promising so far, buddy!

Yeah, it should still work. The holes for the steerer and bar are perfect fits. I still have a ton of work left on it!

Mines made from 2 blocks of wood threaded bar, couple nuts and washers.

I was using wood blocks for a while. It's funny how many solutions there are and how much Park charges for theirs... though it is very nice.

thinking of tacking a couple of pieces of metal rod to the nuts on mine, so I don't have to use a spanner.
