Just got my Pro assembled and was jogging the machine to the lower right as per assembly instructions. The x axis performs flawlessly, however, the y axis binds upon movement and thus will not move. I can’t reason why this is happening as I can turn the lead screws by hand and the y axis moves. I have examined the lead nuts and they appear ok. I have even put a spot of oil on the lead screws with no avail. If I push back on the white collar on the LH side the y axis moves in the negative y direction but will not move in the positive. Any support for this? Thanks
Are you positive that the motor coupler is not slipping?
Yep, that was the issue; one coupler needed to be torqued a bit more. I guess I took your warning to heart-“Caution: Excessive torque can cause the screws or hex key to strip”. Thanks for the quick and knowledgeable response.
We should probably take that note out of the instructions then! Glad to hear it’s working now.
