  • Z axis motor failed

    Howdy fellow Camheads.
    I was working along Saturday, minding my own business, when I started getting z axis errors. The spindle would raise a few inches, then stop and throw the code.
    After several attempts to figure it out, I decided to move on and just replace the motor.
    I keep spares of almost every item so I am not down, waiting on parts.
    From start to finish, it took about 10 minutes until I was cutting again.
    I love how simple these machines are.
    I love my Camaster.

    That is all.

    I went with Camaster in 2007 for this reason, i did not want a machine which i would never learn or be able to fix and repair myself. most every part is available with no Propietary issues.
