I cut the 611 plate with my 525 MPCNC, then I somehow murdered my MPCNC while doing a test run for one of the side plates (basically I nuked the Z axis allthread…yes that’s how old that MPCNC is). I ended up cutting the side plates with a jig saw and a drill press. I got a LR2 kit from @vicious1 and everything assembled just fine.
Got my DOM tubing yesterday, and here’s my issue: The tubing was extremely difficult to insert through the rollers on the 611 plate, and there is quite a lot of tension. The top bolts on the rollers are not even snug, and the tubes do not move freely. There’s so much tension I am actually worried about skipping steps.
The side plates are fine and the tubing moves like I would expect.
So I’m wondering if my MPCNC drilled the holes for the rollers just ever-so-slightly too close together? And when I assembled the 611 plate the rollers were “pulled in” because of it? Maybe?
Should I just drill some larger holes and hope that fixes it? Literally my plan with the LR2 is to use it to make new plates for itself as one of the first projects, so it would be a short-term fix.
