Crashed my z axis yesterday. Told the machine to ‘home’ and z went up, up, and up. Hit the e-stop, but the limit switch was toast. Never had a problem before.
I believe one of the issues ‘might’ be the Header Connector. Connecter is loose and wobbly. YouTube vid I found talks about replacing it with a different style Header Connector, but his being in Britain made any reference to local merchants for parts a problem.
Does anyone have any recommendations. Only solution I can come up with involves soldering the wires directly to the pins.
I’ve verified that these connectors will work for mating to existing male header. They have spring slots on one side to stuff a wire into and then slide onto the male header. They are essentially a solderless wire to female header adapter. Not bad, but not as good as desoldering the male header and putting in 100 mil pitch screw terminals.
