Here we have ear and eye protection. Wearing gloves when handling the material is also recommended, but make sure that you take them off when milling, since you do NOT want it getting caught in the spindle (same goes for hair, sleeves, ties, necklaces!).

When setting the Z (height) axis, you use a piece of metal connected to the machine to which the drill bit is lowered on. Once they touch, the control software will detect connectivity. It is a smart move to touch the drill bit with the metal plate before performing the calibration, to make sure that the connectivity is there. If it's not, it could damage the work piece and machine if the drill bit is lowered too far.
