Once again this forum pointed me in the right direction

I saw that paint spray can holder and said I needed that. Did up my drawing, transferred the gcode to the Shapeoko, cut and assembled it.

But … Paint cans wouldn’t fit. My round holes were really ovals. Checked the drawing - it was OK, tried some other feeds and speeds, no difference. Reloaded the setting to the machine, no difference.

So what would the forum tell me to do next - check the set screws on the stepper motors. Well the left Y motor had one missing and the other was not tightened on the flat spot! - problem fixed.

So remember when having an issue make sure you don’t have a screw loose! lol


As with driving the problem is usually a loose nut on the steering wheel.:slight_smile:
