This weekend was a good time for me to dive in and build the kit. I’ve built the frame, I added an extra cross beam to add some rigidity at the top (below the 10’ cross section, as well as at the bottom inside of the triangle). Everything has been going fine, I’ve had to go through calibration a few times as I’m figuring things out and now I thought I was ready to finish calibration and cut the final sled. When it went to cut for calibration, it failed because the chain became tangled. I’m not sure what the problem is, but I think it’s a lubrication issue.
Left motor chain tangled
- Has anyone else seen this happen?
- If this is a lubrication issue, what is the proper oil? I’d expect it to be something light weight, but my concern would be getting oil onto the wood I’m cutting if too much is applied.
The UI threw an error when this happened. I was across the room when it happened and I did not realize that it had become tangled.
