I just got my OF this week.
While I was assembling my OF, I noticed that manually moving the Y axis was more difficult and noisy that I expected, at least compared to moving the X axis.
I connected a laptop to the OF controller (OF touch screen isn’t here yet) so I could power up the OF and run the machine via stepper motors to see if the noisy movement was just my imagination.
While jogging the Y axis, a loud, grinding (sort of) noise seems to come from the right ball screw nut. Short of taking the Y rail apart to investigate, does anyone have experience with a similar situation or ideas on what I should look for?
Machine is basically stock besides being set up with drag chains and the extension cables for X and Z.
