I am loving my Maslow CNC and its capabilities. Unfortunately one of my left motor gears has failed after only 4 months of weekend use. I see that is is becoming a more common problem. I suspect we will start to see a lot more gear failures due to the many Maslow machines that have been sold lately. I have a few projects that I’m doing for other people, so I am trying to come up with a quick temporary fix. I have considered 3D printing a gear, but 3D printed part are just not strong enough. So I am attempting to make a resin gear and test its capabilities.
After cleaning the gear, one can clearly see that it is failing in one rotation direction.
I am not very keen to buy the same motor again, knowing the lack of quality of the gear. Has anyone tried a different motor? Have another solution to this problem. @bar do you still have some spare gears?
