In order to get jobs cut evenly on your Industrial CNC Router, it's important to make sure your tabletop is even with your spindle. Even if you've made sure your routers legs are level, there can still be high and low points on the top surface. The best way to do this is using the spindle itself to plane the surface below.

Step 1: Planing or Fly Cutting Bit

The first thing you'll need is a planing bit designed to skim the surface of material. The bigger the diameter of your bit the quicker the job will be done. You can either run the bit up and down the table manually, or you can just use a post processor program to make a "pocket" the size of your table.
