I seem to be breaking everything on my first maslow as I’m trying to calibrate it. First I twisted the chain pulling it tight to measure and now I’ve damaged the ring.
I tried to perform the test cut portion of the calibration, but the router kept slipping out the plastic switch for the z-axis. I stopped the cut after it started to run down on the right side of the material. I then tried to center the sled, but the machine wasn’t responding. After a few minutes I unplugged and plugged back in the usb. The sled then started climbing to top of the material while centered on the x-axis. It moved so far to the top and pulled the chains so tight that the ring was twisted in the process.
My immediate concern is replacing the ring without having to pay for an entire ring set. Does anyone have any ideas on how to go about this?
Second, does anyone have any recommendations for basic z-axis setup. I see that there is a bungy-cord involved in a lot of photos, but I haven’t seen anything on how to make sure it stays in place.
