So I got my build to the point that I wanted to give it a test and make sure everything was going smoothly.
I made a small error in one of my commands and gave a G0 Z1000 instead of a G0 Z100. What a difference a zero makes .
Needless to say the Z axis hit the bed. No major damage other than the Z nutlock. It cracked and split so I’ll need to replace it.
I’ve removed the old nutlock but it was a nightmare to grip the nuts while the machine is assembled. I can’t see an easy way to get the nuts in place while fitting the new one though.
Anyone have any tricks/knacks for fitting a new Z nutlock while the machine is assembled?
