    today I had my Z axis motor screws come loose which dropped the Z axis into my work piece, I don’t know how my 1/8 bit didn’t snap! the collet nut left a night burn mark.

     

    The Z axis motor screws are probably the most susceptible to loosening due to vibration and the most difficult to see when they are coming loose.

    Looks like I need to hurry and add that threadlocker to the shop. I have a big bag of tiny tubes. Z axis and pulley grubs…
