First off - I'm new to the world of CNC machines and to this forum so big hello from me
Now, I'm sure I am not the only one who has had issues with the y-axis, from searching the forum I see many a post asking for help and advice regarding binding issues...
I have had my SC2 420 for little over 2 weeks now and in this time it has spent most of its short life in bits. I have had binding issues since the beginning, I have watched ever tutorial video, read every post and stripped, cleaned and re-assembled the machine 3 times - my conclusion on whats causing the binding issue seems to be the supplied lubricant.
I am wondering if anyone else has had such an issue? I have literally spent 20 hours plus adjusting and re-adjusting the lead screws, bearing tension, belt tension and gantry alignment and then today I had my 420 running smoothly for 2 hours but then I remembered that I have not lubed up the rails and lead screw, so I applied a small amount of the supplied lube and just like that that, the binding issue was back. So I cleaned it off, reached for the trusty old WD40 and gave it a few squirts... just like that, no binding!!!
So has anyone experienced the same issue and if not but youre having binding troubles maybe its this.
Hi, I've a similar issue.
I didn't use my 420 for about 2 years and now the circle aren't circle and the 90° angles are "smoothed".
I've noticed the X stepper motor is not working correctly, it seems to "jump" when it move from X+ to X- and from X- to X+.
So, it seems to lose a step, but I checked every bear and the other components and for me all it's ok.
Can you help me? Thanks
