  • How do I order 3 specific lengths of lead screws in one order? I could only order a single total amount via the shopping process. I require 36", 60" and 14". If I order 110", I will get 79" + 31". Do I have to order 115" and pay for an extra 5" to get around this?

  • If I order 19ft of the 1/2" lead screw will it come in three 6'5" lengths by default? This is what I need. Thanks

    No they will not come in that length as a default, we would contact the buyer to ask specific lengths due to the total length purchased.

    However if you order the 1/2" lead screw we can get them cut to the specific length you require, by contacting us here or call us at 281-815-7701.

  • How do I order the 10 TPI 5-start 2-turns-per-inch screws?, just shows $ per inch with no option for lenght.

    When purchasing the 1/2" 5 start lead screw, the length is based on the quantity. Specify the total length you will need and we will email you (if you don't contact us first) to determine the cut lengths.

    For example, if you desire 36 inches of lead screw for the X axis and 12 inches of lead screw for the Y axis, just purchase 48 inches of lead screw and tell us you need this lead screw cut so you have two lengths at 36 inches and 12 inches.

  • If using a grease how does one protect leadscrews and rails from corian dust etc.

    If you have abrasive particles in the air from milling, you will want to periodically clean the mechanical parts like the lead screw and anti-backlash nuts. After cleaning the parts, all of the high friction parts that will be in constant contact, lubricating the parts with oils, grease or other lubricants. If the part is of steel material, that material will definitely need to be oiled, greased or lubricated so minimal oxidation will affect the exterior of the steel parts.

    The anti-backlash nut is made of Delrin, so petroleum chemicals like oils, grease or lubricants are ok to use. Abrasive particles may affect the anti-backlash nut over time; however, the spring and bushing of the anti-backlash nut will provide extensive use regardless of the wear.

  • To have a compete CNC solution i juste have to : Order and assembly a CNC kit , install a specific CNC software....And is that all ?

    That will depend on the CNC machine kit that you select. Make sure to include a spindle with your purchase if the machine does not include one. You will also need end mills to serve as the cutting instrument that will conform to your application. Some machines do not include a table. For those, you will need to build the table for the machine. If you select a machine with electronics and you did not elect to purchase the redFly, redSprout or redLeaf, then you will need wire and cable to connect the electronics.

  • Can’t find info about all three lead screws in you book or how to secure them

    The details will differ depending on the type of lead screw you use.

    For allthread lead screws, you will need the 1/2" square nut, 1/2" allthread lead screw, two 1/4" screws and nuts to hold the square nut in place, two 1/2" ID bearings, two standard 1/2" nuts, and one coupling hub.

    Attach the square nut to the nut support using the two 1/4" screw and nuts. The bearings will need to be inserted into the seats of the lower and upper part of the z-axis. Insert the lead screw through the top bearing. Use one of the standard 1/2" nuts and start threading it on the allthread screw just below the bearing. Lower the lead screw to the square nut and start to screw the lead screw into the square nut. Continue until the screw is near the lower bearing. Add another standard 1/2" nut to the screw and keep turning the screw until the screw just passes the lower bearing. Add the coupling hub to the top of the screw just above the upper bearing. Turn the lower and upper standard 1/2" nuts until they are snug against the bearing. If the standard 1/2" nuts become loosened, consider adding another nut to each end against the existing nut to keep them in place.

    For 1/2" acme 5 start lead screws, you will need to use an antibacklash nut in place of the square nut. This nut attaches with a flange using two #8 screws and nuts. The standard 1/2" nuts are replaced by clamping collars.
