I was trying to drill and tap the nib on the interlock for the Ridged router z axis to make it simpler to prevent it from pivoting. I also desired it to be simple to disengage so that I can pull the spindle easily. The pot metal shattered leaving a cradle for a conical wedge (otherwise known as a wire nut ). I used a large zip tie all the way around the interlock mechanism and used a small screw to secure it from slipping. The screw may have also tightened the wedge. I am glad I have managed to get the stock z axis to make it this far but don’t know how long it is for the world.
What does it take to completely redo the z axis? Build? Settings? Calibrations? I’m intimidated . Also… What’s going on when measurements don’t match from cam to reality?
