I am trying to get my Z axis kit working on my Bosch AE 1200 with the kit I bought on here. It works fine when it is not attached to the router. However when I have attached it to the Bosch router & try to lower the bit, as part of the calibration it locks up badly after a few turns. The top plate of the plywood adaptor, the one by the motor, is bending in by several millimeters and then locks up the coupler so that it can not turn. It makes a loud screeching noise while that is happening. I was surprised how much it moves and am not sure what I am doing wrong.
Maybe the bolts I am using are too thin? But I am pretty sure they were the ones that came with the kit. I will try to take a better video of what is happening
