So for the moment, this is a placeholder for a bunch of pictures I’m going to toss up here on the latest step of this process. It’s all together and as long as I can get it fine tuned, will be great. The lineal bearings slide perfectly until the 3×3 piece of extrusion is tightened down to it so I’m assuming there’s some flex in there somewhere causing this to happen. I’ve shimmed the bearings and that has done the opposite and made it not move what so ever
So here’s the pics I promised. This one is just of the linear bearing with the 3×3 on top
Here’s what a shim looks like/how thick it is:
Here’s where those shims go:
Here’s a video of before I added the shims:
here’s a video of how it slides before I tighten the 3×3 to the linear bearings…
wondering if it may require some shims of its own so it doesn’t clamp itself to the table when the bolts are tightened. Maybe that is what is causing my problem?
