Powermax 65 Finecut issues

Seeing if anyone out with more cutting time experience has any tricks they would like to share. Each time I do a long cut (more than 5 min.) I always get some sort of error cut code. Usually its a 0-21, which is a lost gas flow while cutting error. I have turned up the gas pressure on the machine, I turned up the psi on my compressor to 120 psi at the regulator and it sort of seems like it is a little bit better, but I still have issues. I noticed that it does this around the time that the compressor is getting ready to kick on...

just a suggestion but you could adjust your Kick on/ Kick off points on the compressor

Fixed it! Initial cut height is key...was at .06 per book, but at .13 no issues
