I am at the point now were i need to wire everything together and turn the power on. This is were i dont have a lot of experience doing this type of stuff. do you guys have any advice?April 29, 2018 at 6:11 pm #59067
I always have advice. Are you looking for general wiring advice or specific wiring instructions for the low rider?April 29, 2018 at 6:28 pm #59068
This shows you how to make sure it is moving in the right direction. Then you can tape a pen to it and try drawing the crown.April 30, 2018 at 6:06 am #59076
i have never wired a mini rambo before and just want to make sure i am putting everything in the right location. Also how tight should the belts be? thanks guys!April 30, 2018 at 9:41 am #59097
Here is a picture of all the pieces that came with the bundle i got. just not sure how some of this goes together. I know the gray cable goes in the red piece on the left and that plugs into the LCD, but i dont know where it plugs into the mini rambo. Also the power supply has a red and white wire, i know where it goes, but which port do i screw it into?

i feel like an idiot. didn’t realize there was this page of info. ty RyanApril 30, 2018 at 9:57 am #59102
Not at all. You made me realize it is not linked on the LowRider page. Working on all of that over the next few days.April 30, 2018 at 3:32 pm #59143
what success have you guys had with vacuum hose for the dust collect? all the hoses i see, seem really stiff.April 30, 2018 at 3:49 pm #59145
It gets looped, I just bought extra that fits mine. Barry mounted his on an arm. You have options.April 30, 2018 at 9:09 pm #59173
I look to the forms try to answer this but was having a hard time finding it. Issue I’m having now is that my Z access moves in opposite directions of each other. I put two blocks on both sides to set it so to be equal but when I go to move it they move in opposite directions.April 30, 2018 at 9:12 pm #59174
That software link I gave you earlier has the answer at the bottom of the page “flip the plug”. If it’s going the wrong way you need to power down and flip one of the plugs over and you’ll be good.April 30, 2018 at 9:22 pm #59175
That was it. Thanks RyanMay 1, 2018 at 4:51 am #59184May 1, 2018 at 6:28 am #59186
Ty Barry. i got everything moving correctly last night and i will attempt to print the crown tonight.May 1, 2018 at 5:50 pm #59235
so i am trying to figure out why my Z is making the noise it is, i checked all the barrings and they moving, but it sounds like it is grinding or something. thoughts?May 1, 2018 at 5:52 pm #59236
Lube?May 1, 2018 at 6:13 pm #59237
lol. that what i thought, just wanted to ask before i apply it.May 2, 2018 at 4:39 am #59252
Yep lube.May 2, 2018 at 7:42 am #59255
found the problem, my table is just a little to big and it was the vertical pipes rubbing on the wood as it moved.May 2, 2018 at 7:45 am #59256
I’d still lube the screws. They will last longer.May 2, 2018 at 8:17 am #59257
silly question but i am going to ask.
How does the CNC machine know the size of my table, when it comes to finding it home position. is that all based on the grid i setup in Repetier Host?
The reason i ask, is if i set my home on the LCD it goes to one end of my table and if i go from Repetier Host, it goes to the opposite end.May 4, 2018 at 5:11 pm #59448
Unless you have end stops, don’t hit the home buttons. Repetier has bed size settings.
