I tried to search out what I could about this, apologies if I missed something…
Where my steppers plug in to the board they seem excessively loose. Just recently I hot glued them in thinking that’d solve it, but just the slightest bit of wiggle/tension makes at least 2 of the steppers (one x, one y) get jumpy. As is, I can’t put the cover on the case because it introduces enough flex/tension/whatever to cause this. This suggests to me that no amount of gluing is really “enough” when such little force can break the connection.
How is this normally handled?
Out of curiosity, why are these cables the way that they are? Unsure if extensions with the proper ends that’ll clip in to the board are just harder/impossible/more expensive to source. If they exist, I want to find them for my own peace of mind lol
Is it even normal for them to be this sensitive or is it possible I have some other issue? I know I’ve received boards (unrelated to MPCNC) with loose solder joints, or cables with loose pins etc. Wondering if i need to extend my troubleshooting. At a quick glance they all seem ok though.
Standard MPCNC setup, all parts purchased from here in the bundles.
Thanks in advance, also I love this thing. It’s milling aluminum like a boss and that is mind blowing to me at this price point. It was also a blast to build.
