    I think I will replace it - I think the encoder inside is bad.
  2. I think you are right Al - what do I buy to...

    I think you are right Al - what do I buy to replace those parts: 685ZZ bearings and a Y gearbox? The FCC is brand new. It is not expensive so I can always replace it again. I have not mailed the...
  3. Z truck works - now I get a Y Axis stall error

    I have to be honest I am getting discouraged - I know chin up - In my previous journey we fixed the air carving issue and replaced aging parts. I carved several sample boards to get the design...

    I upgraded to the Carvetight Z truck. I thought it was a problem however the problem turned out to be the encoder in the motor. This is a used Z truck set up for quick change. It works well. It...

  6. Thanks - I will switch out and see what I get.

    Thanks - I will switch out and see what I get.
  7. refining detail - does a 1/32 carving bit give more detail than the 1/16?

    I see a little refinement going from 1/16 to 1/16 long - but I will be carving in curly maple - this photo is pine practice board with the 1/16 long bit. I have a 1/32 - any thoughts?

    Success - I figured it out - I had cut many different samples into the same board it was throwing the measure off - I taped the board and voila - it worked. I am now adjusting height and depth on...
  9. The bit is brand new - for the carvetight spindle...

    The bit is brand new - for the carvetight spindle in the new z truck. setting it for best helped some but not enough. Now it is sizing the pattern down - I have not had that before - using it on...
  10. I did the Best optimal setting - it was a little...

    I did the Best optimal setting - it was a little bit better but not right. The truck is as tight as it should be - Too tight maybe? Also I am thinking the Y is all right but maybe that needs to be...
  11. Well the air carving turned out to be the z encoder and motor - now

    I installed a new z motor and finally have everything working. The carving is not as refined - I am thinking I may have to tighten the z-truck? I can't feel much wiggle but there is a hair.
    The...
  12. OK - makes sense. Thank-you. Learning a lot.

    OK - makes sense. Thank-you. Learning a lot.
  13. I am looking at which way these connect. It...

    I am looking at which way these connect. It comes from the cut motor switch - the cable has black and white while the cables these connect to are both white. One connects closest to the end panel...
  14. Could the AC cut motor switch cause that error?

    Could the AC cut motor switch cause that error?
  15. Oh and Yes is it is a B machine - the directions...

    Oh and Yes is it is a B machine - the directions said I needed the 14 pin head.
  16. I read through the trouble shooting documentation...

    I read through the trouble shooting documentation and at one point it said that I could swap the Z and Y cables to see if when I moved the z truck manually it moved the y sensor numbers. I don't...
  17. New cover switch fixed it - now I get a Z Stall

    I have replaced the roller pads, the memory card, the Flex shaft, the Z-truck assembly, the cover switch, the cut off wires to the cover switches, the head termination board, the FCC cable, and I...
  18. Light Bulb moment - I received the new switch and...

    Light Bulb moment - I received the new switch and now I understand. The two brass looking posts are for the wires to connect to the switch. When I removed the cover from the old one, the wires were...

    The board sensor is working well - I will check the orientation of the plug. I will give the test a try.
  20. I will look at that once I can get it to do...

    I will look at that once I can get it to do anything but give me the error message. No I have the FCC cable in correctly - there was a small nick on the edge of the old one that I was not sure if it...
  21. Well.... I changed out the FCC cable, the head...

    Well.... I changed out the FCC cable, the head termination board, the cut off switch cable, and the AC motor cut off cable. When I was doing it the controller cutoff switch - on the side of the...
  22. I will look at it.

    I will look at it.
  23. I did not open that one. I did open the right...

    I did not open that one. I did open the right side, then checked the wire connections on that side, then I checked the black plug on that left side of the cover close to the key pad and the lines to...
  24. Changed out the Z truck for the Carve tight - now Close Cover error won't stop

    I cannot tell if the Z-truck upgrade solved the air carving issue because now the close cover error can't be cleared. I took it all back apart and checked all of the connections from the cover on...
  25. Thank-you that helps! It was cleaned and no...

    Thank-you that helps! It was cleaned and no help. I have surrendered and decided to upgrade to the CT z truck to see if that helps. Needed to be done eventually anyway. Once I get it and get it...
