Hey everyone. I just got my Longmill a few days ago and have been setting it up! I’m really excited to get started, but I cannot get it mounted correctly! I have made sure the table is level. I have tightened the wheels with the eccentric nuts to the point where they’re just unable to be turned with two fingers.
In this video it starts to chatter / vibrate towards the end of the zero movements. Sometimes one side of the axis will stop and get stuck, misaligning the axis with each other. It is worse on faster feed rates. I’ve tried adjusting the tension screws too.
I cannot get this aligned since this keeps happening. I’ve followed the instructions, and I just don’t know what to do anymore. I got my lead screws slightly bent / warped so they have some wiggle when turning a bit, so I don’t know if that matters. I tightened the ACME screws to be nice and snug too.
