Thanks for the details, Hood. So the screw actually tightens the ball against the taper and so an O-ring is not needed. Slick.

0.25mm/rev doesn't sound that slow Smiley

I'll have to consider that... must be lathes serve as very good work benches Cheesy

Nice work, Hood. The adjustable nozzles are COOL! Is it just flat bottom bore with an O-ring? And I assume the bolt head holds it from falling out.

Hard to judge sizes and hence speeds on the video - looks like it's too slow on the Delrin? I machine Delrin with chip-break inserts at 0.15-0.2mm/rev.

Oh.. is it your cross slide or your work bench Wink

Dave,

This is the plugin I am using.

Dave,

I'm using Mach3 Dev version 057 and SS ver 17cd and it works fine here.

Hi Dave,

It was a fix in the SS plugin. Or to put it better - an addition of backlash compensation code to the SS plugin.

Check bearing fitting tables. The bearing fit in the housing doesn't have to be as tight as on the shaft. It's not an interference fit for that matter in most cases.

Hi,

Backlash is fixed in SS for quite some time now. Works well here. Except when you program a move which is smaller than the set backlash, in which case it jumps to wrong position - a bit offset from the correct one.

Nice work, Mike.

50% axial load for a deep groove ball bearing... sounds too much to me too. Hope he knew what he was saying Wink

Thanks for the video, Tweakie. Now I have a clue what 20Hz sounds like. It works fairly fast considering it stops at each dot location.

Nice smiley, by the way.
