I would like to purchase a Roland rotary engraver for a church fund raising project.
Does anyone know of one for sale at a reasonable cost?

Had this exact problem many years ago on the camm 3, The stepper motor is connected to the screw with a brass collar and the screw is held tight to this with a small grub screw which takes an allen key.
This had slightly worked loose on mine so it was traveling intermittently, I reasoned it was a mechanical local problem as it only affected the x axis and that's what it was.
