Interesting, filling the tubing. How has this been working out for you? Have you cut much aluminum with it?
I was wondering if real Hiwin rails and carriers move really freely. I bought the chineese replica, and my god! The carriers are almost impossible to move over the rails.
Thanks mate. Yeah they where tight but not to bad. Here is a vid of the y axis sliding. Also i added some lithium greese to mine.
Looks better than mine, if I can get a hand on the grease gun required i might give them a shot, it would certainly do not hurt
What a nice build, looks very strong in the Y-Z. I'm curious about how the Y will hold up with one wide HIWN.
thanks mate. yeah x and y axis where both strong enough but z axis was the weak link.
I have since stripped this router down and i plan to redesign it with 12mm leadscrews
A standard grease tip usually works. At least it does on my THK carriages.
