Shapeoko 3 Z axis

Hi all,

After not using my machine for a few months, I was having a weird binding issue with the Z axis. The machine initiatilized and calibrated fine, but then when cutting the Z wouldn’t return to its top location - just bound. I started tinkering with it and these parts fell out.

Now it’s pretty happy, but I have to suspect these are important. Any ideas as to what I’m looking at?


That is the lead screw on the Z-Plus — please write in to and we will work out how to handle this.

You’ve already got it apart, but here’s a guide I did on replacement :slight_smile:


Thanks, Will! I will send a note.
