Bought a maslow about 6 months ago, but for various reasons only get to play for a couple of hours per weekend so its taking me a while.
Went through the standard calibration hell (compounded by the fact I’m using a truncated workspace of 1600 x 800 so keeping chain tension is a bit of a pain), and then somehow (not entirely sure what I did differently, it just worked) all was OK. After assorted router issues, actually managed to get things cut. Hurray!
After about 3 weeks, I had a disaster mid-cut with the chain skipping off the sprocket and the router crashed to the floor.
No problems, I’ll just set it back up and re-calibrate. This was about a month ago, and its still failing.
The latest issue is that during calibration of the z-axis, hitting the lower button (and I assume the raise button but I haven’t tried) causes the sled to move!
If I ignore this and tell it I don’t have a z-axis fitted, then calibration is completed but whenever I try to move the sled down in GC it tries to move up. (Moving up moves the sled up, moving right moves right, moving left just sits there).
Tried the normal: wiping Eprom and reinstalling firmware (both 1.25 and 1.26). Similarly with GC 1.25 and 1.26.
Any ideas, or have I managed to kill it?
