Homing Stopped FYI

Postby Jewelermdt » Tue Nov 07, 2017 2:37 am

Went to print some things today and when it went to homing cycle it went down and stopped. Tried several things to no avail. Last year I had to replace the switch. I thought it broke again. Nope. Tried to move the needle. No movement at all. Tore it apart to find resin had gotten inside the tube and somehow cured. It was like cement. Got pin out and had to use burs to scrap out the resin.

Printer needed a good cleaning anyway.

Just though I would pass this along just in case it happens to someone else down the road.

it's all cleaned up and back together. I'm guessing a drop of resin got on the homing pin and ran down inside the tube and somehow cured.
