Okay I finally tested the new setup.
I had a bad file so the part didn’t come out but I’m uploading a few quick snippets of video.
So I have no idea why it is cutting so much better but it could be that I finally screwed it down (it was double sided taped before), the new better middle z part, or the dw660 spindle but this thing was killing it! When the file screwed up I had it at 120% feed rate and it was cutting at least 3mm at a pass in red oak and it wasn’t having any issues I could have went deeper or faster!
Setting were .6 DOC, 25mm/s +120% no problems
PS I need to make a new forum for hardware, this is getting jumbled.
