Video 3 - XYZ Origin
This video shows you how to move the bit to your XYZ origin that you programmed in VCarve, and how to zero XYZ using the control pad and the tool set puck.
Video 4 - Starting Your Piece
This video shows you how to use the control pad to find your tool path file and start it running.
Video 5: Pausing And Restarting
This video shows you how to use the control pad to pause in the middle of a job, save your stop point, and then restart from that point again. It also shows what to do if the emergency red button on the CNC is pushed, or the electricity cuts out in the middle of a job.

This video shows you how to run a job that has multiple tool paths. This job is a 60 degree carving starting with a 1/4" endmill clear out.
