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

Yes it's a cover for the Z-axis motor.

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.
