Starting a new topic regarding weak Z axis steppers. What I originally thought was a faulty MiniRAMBo has been ruled out. The issue: My Z steppers do not have enough torque to raise the carriage (even without the router on it).
Everything has been bought from this website (except the power supply) and is built per spec. Everything has been re-wired 4 different times. Wiring is not the issue. The power supply is providing 21 volts and should be able to supply up to 15 amps. Voltage has been confirmed with a multimeter and I will follow up in the morning with the amperage I’m getting when only the Z steppers are moving.
Note: I put a torque wrench on them earlier this afternoon and couldn’t get a reading. The tool was rated to read in inch-pounds but I think this might be a little much. I am looking online to find a tool that will give me an accurate torque reading.
Any ideas what my issue might be??? I’m really tired of not understanding why my machine won’t work It is time to be cutting parts.
