=Status history=
June 2017: There is an intermittent break in the wiring for the Z-axis Zero Plate. Check for continuity before using (the #1 input should light up on screen when you touch the contacts together). It usually works near the front of the table, but not halfway back. This will get fixed eventually, but it's a good idea to be in the habit of checking.
'''Authorization for this tool by authorized proctors only.''' This means you cannot get authorized by just anyone who is already authorized. You can only get authorized by a few people, the proctors listed below.
Authorization sessions are scheduled roughly monthly. Check the [https://www.meetup.com/Pumping-Station-One/events/ Meetup calendar] for upcoming authorizations. If no ShopBot sessions are currently scheduled, ask the [[CNC Area Host]] or on the [https://groups.google.com/group/pumping-station-one/ Google Group].
Be aware that this authorization consists of two parts; the first session is a classroom session that will cover the software required and introduce you to the essential settings and chip-load calculation, and the second part, scheduled separately, is a hands-on class.

== Use checklist ==
PS1 is experimenting with the use of checklists to encourage the safe use and proper care of tools in the workspace. The latest version of the [[checklists]] for this tool is stored as a [https://docs.google.com/document/d/1L78Rr_T8vhV8XZLRReKIWYXAyOnS8CLfJmAxehVeThU1zxrvQX0DXaLxaXkaKCKpZ-PAgnDak6ezKKBkdu_Fw1U/edit ?usp=sharing Google Doc] that can be edited by anyone. If you make changes, update the effective date at the bottom of the document. Print a new copy, and replace the old one.
Physical checklists are necessarily constrained in length. Following is a more extensive pre-flight checklist:
* Is the dust skirt set right so it does not get smashed.
* Is Z zero set to the work top?
* Is Are the touch plate and clip returned.?* Is the material properly secured?* Open the Shopbot spindle control dialog (Tools > Spindle RPM Control)
* Safety glasses, hearing protection on.
* Start the job with the E-Stop ready to hit.
* Turn on dust collector ( I like to wait so I can hear that things sound right on the shopbot before turning on the collector)

If you have been authorized but cannot log in, request to be added to the "ShopBot Authorized" Samba group (send an email to info (at) pumpingstationone.org with your username and the name of the person who certified you) so that your login works. If you don't have a log-in on https://members.pumpingstationone.org/ you will have issues here - sign up on that site first if you haven't already.
=== Lack of True E-Stop ===
As shipped, the ShopBot PRS does not support an Emergency Stop. This could be hacked, but it runs the risk of damaging the machine if engaged in a non-emergency situation. Suggested solution: Installing a 10A double pole 24V coil DIN mount relay, and powering the coil via the 24V supply through a normally closed E-Stop button. One pole will disconnect the 63V stepper motor current. One pole will break the control signal that enables the VFD and will cause the VFD to brake to a stop.
 
=== Automatic Dust Collection ===
The ShopBot has +5V TTL outputs that could be used to trigger automatic dust collection (when the spindle goes live) and/or a warning light (when the gantry is enabled to move.)
=== Limit Switch Issues ===
