Is there anyone in Wisconsin (I reside in Sheboygan County) who would be willing (I’ll pay) to come to my house and help me finish building my X-Carve. I can’t get any of the wheels lined up properly on the X-carriage or on the gantry. I just can’t get smooth movement. I’ve read that I should use shim, etc. but I just haven’t had much luck. Believe it or not, I’ve had this thing since January of 2021 and I still don’t have it together. I started, got frustrated, took a break, got busy at work, etc. I’d really like to get it completed with someone’s assistance. If you’re interested in helping, please reply here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work something out.
If you have not gotten the machine working by the beginning of August, I might be able to drop by one afternoon between Aug. 2 - 4 since I will be out in Milwaukee for some training. I can not make any promises, but I would try to see if I could get to your location one afternoon/evening.
Although it’s the older version, the part you’re having issues with it still the same and I think this video depicts the Vwheel Assembly fairly clearly. (you may want to rewind to the Y side plate part to get the order of assembly, but the official manual lays them out clear enough…)
I’ve queued it up to the point where the X assembly is being put together…
Thanks, I appreciate it. I’ll be sure to keep this updated so if I have it figured out by then you will know.
Thanks Seth. I appreciate you queuing the video up. I think I might just take everything off and start from scratch again.
