This will need access for thightning the scrubscrew on the coupler. The distance is about 30mm that i want to keep clean during operation....I figured using my trusty wombot and print a box i can fill with resin for strength and it's purpose is to hold a skateboard bearing and breach the distance for the coupler
Yay my tap arrived
Runs really smooth so ill skip on backlash because i'm not noticing any yet.
The first nut was way of centre so i printed a block to pin point the middle and at the same time cut the right length
Here it is mid print (nice and solid
Still need to protect the wires on the motors and figure out Z direction...the leadnut housing broke so i came up with a sideways solution and used the same for z direction, made a mounting block for motor that i fixed to a new small column.
The nut plate and the new column are fixed to the mill by using the existing bolt holes where the spring used to be
That worked, under load my axis connection to the motor had some trouble so had to put in some grub screw for more grip
Enough testing lets give it a good workout
10mm aluminium BOOOYYaaaa so happy
the skateboard bearing is completely flat and is now replaced with a proper "thrust" bearing.....will update soon
