Re: Z axis lock screwy
- My manual didn't help, and being a noob myself... I can tell you what I
did, but it may not be the 'correct' way. 1) set up a dial indicator
under the head to measure vertical movement when locking the Z axis. 2)
tightened the Z gib a little bit. 3) measured how much shift there was
when locking the head. 4) repeated adjusting until the vertical shift I
measured was all but gone -- checked/tweaked so that the head could
still move freely without binding. At the "end" of the process, there
was still about .0002"-.0005" vertical shift present that I decided I
could not eliminate because tightening the gib further caused
resistance/binding when moving the head.
> Thanks, I remember reading that somewhere. Do you have any tips on how to adjust it?
