Ordbot Z Axis

Postby abc123 » Thu Feb 13, 2014 3:31 am

So I actually bought a Ordbot in November of 2012. Well I started putting it together but literally shelved the project for over a year. Well in January 2014 I finally decided to finish putting it together. And it worked ok. I had a lot of wobble in the Z axis and found out that they changed some parts. So I purchased the heavy duty Stepper attachments and the left/right aligners as well as the new couplers for the shaft to the stepper motors. Now it works much better.

What I was wondering is, is if anyone uses some Teflon / oil /something on the z axis to make sure it really run smooth ????

Thanks Steven

I use a little silicone oil now and then from my airsoft supply.

... and I've used lithium grease applied with an acid brush... seemed to really smooth up the travel...
