I think that I’d like to eventually use the OpenBuilds Acme screw in the future on my X-Carve’s Z-Axis. Main reason is because of the nifty anti-backlash nut that they sell. In addition to figuring out how I’m going to get the bearing and pulley from the X-Carve to work with the new rod, I need to figure out whether I should change any of my Grbl settings.
Can someone review these specs and instruct me? ( I think I gleaned the correct ones for ours.)
Inventables Acme screw:
Lead Screw Diameter 0.375" (9.525 mm)
Pitch 2.117 mm
Lead 0.083" (2.1082 mm)
Openbuilds Acme Screw:
Tr8*8-2p (4 starts)
Lead Screw Diameter ∅ 8 (mm)
Pitch 2 (mm)
Lead 8 (mm)
My thanks to @AngusMcleod for the info he’s already posted about Acme screws in the past. This is just something completely new to me.
