Thread: Z truck trouble

  1. Default Z truck trouble

    Z truck is not moving up and down smoothly. Also carving is looking very rough. Any ideas?

    Dirty or bad Z bearings, Z bearings loose, Z gear box bearings bad or the mounting screws for the gear box to motor loose.

    Grab the end of a bit in that is installed. Tug in and out to feel for any play. if any, determine if it is the Y or Z rollers the are not tight. Use your 12mm wench (from CarveWright) to adjust the appropriate rollers tighter to the tracks.

    You probably do not need a new truck, just the bearings.

    Without seeing them I really can not say. Do you have the truck off yet to see what bearings are the problem? I would order both sets just to be sure.
