I made 1 successful cut of a pumpkin this weekend. It was the greatest feeling in the world after spending months getting up and going (newbie here). However, I think I got too excited about my first success, because now we have some major issues with the Z.
I tried to cut another piece today and the Z axis plunged completely to the bottom and went all the way through 3 boards, and tried to keep going!
I have a brand spanking new orange tab and spring, so I know this issue is NOT orange related.
I have also attached the bushing AND washer to the worm as previous posts suggested. Also, we don’t have a bungee attached (worked fine without one on last cut) so it can’t be pressure related. What else am I missing here? All screws are tight, and no changes since the last use. The tab traveled from the very top to the very bottom and tried to keep going. How can that be? How can I fix where this doesn’t keep happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Apologies in advance for my never ending novice questions)
