Question #: 4681

Question: Every time the machine starts to cut a new pass it jumps +.033 inch on the x axis. Does anyone have any idea why it might do this?

Current Solution

If an axis is showing play when there is force against the axis (force in the opposite direction imposed on the bit when cutting material), the problem may be in the mechanical system. If the mechanical system is roller chain and sprocket, or rack and pinion, check the sprocket or pinion gear to confirm the tightness of the set screw. If the mechanical system is a lead screw, confirm that the coupling is secured well to the lead screw and the motor shaft.
