Hi, sorry for a post like this. I’ve search but I’m overwhelmed and unsure of what to do.
My xcarve is just a total pain to use. Had it for 2 years now and the zaxis constantly loosens and is inaccurate. Yesterday I was doing a cut and it put to much strain on the machine. I think the bolts holding the v wheels may have bent. I believe it all needs replacing including the v wheels.
Before I replace them I see a lot of people are buying linear slide z axis assemblies off ebay. I’ve tried reading the threads about this but I’m really unsure what one to buy and what is involved. I’d rather spend a little more and get something that is bolt on and as simple as possible. I don’t need more z travel.
Could anyone please point me in the right direction. I’m sick of this xcarve. Easier to make things the old fashioned way. Really hoping a beefy new z axis will take this headache away. I’d even be willing to pay someone to assemble it all for me and have it top notch ready to go.
Thank you very much for any help. It’s greatly appreciated.
