Oké but it's only that second axis that's have made the distance bigger... Will this give so much change??? It's only 10mm...

That second axis I need for my floating head... There I have but a stronger spring in and this worked very good milling are much better.

The changes were i am thinking of:

- make the z-axis a bit stronger...
- Y-axis lagering and maybe another spindel in it...

Are my idee's good for the z-axis? Despite the great distance, the better?

Because now if I push on the tool the whole z-axis moves... Hessel do you have that problem also? You have also that new axis?

Thieu,

My mechanical capacties are far below zero, so no real construction idea's alas.

I have the new Z-axis (as you know).

My engraving head "construction" with pictures is here (for those who haven't seen it here).

Hello Thieu,

at your pictures I can see anything that looks like a cover for the z-axis stepper motor. Is it a part of the profiler kit?
I'm asking because it was not included im my kit and for me the machine looks unready without this part.

with best regards

Jarek,

Since the z axis kit was for many people an upgrade I presume the Colinbus people did expect that this cover from the old z axis would be used for the new.

Since you probably have the new one as your first I think it's the best to ask Colinbus for a (free) cover.
