W axes calibration
#15
Videos are a good place to start, they will give you a baseline to work from.

But there is absolutely no substitute for actually cutting metal.

Pick up a random piece of metal and make some cuts. If something doesn't work out, try to figure out what went wrong. Go back to the videos if it's stumping you.
With any kind of machining operation, be it milling, turning, drilling, etc., the chips will tell you exactly what is going on. The size, shape and color of the chip will tell you what adjustments you need to make. Once you learn what the chip should look like, and what they look like when something is off, you will be well on your way.

Happy Machining!
Regards,
Brian
