… and we managed to get the z axis collar off. But is there not a better way to get more torque on the z axis? The collar between the motor and lead screw does not “secure” with a set screw onto the flat motor post, it just spins a lot.
A friend suggested I tap a hole and put an additional set screw so it can secure to the flat spot on the motor post. That seems kudgy.
Ordered a different coupling from Amazon. The one FB shipped tightens around the shaft but does not have any way to lock into the flat spot on the shaft. The coupling I ordered has set screws at 90 degrees from the axis so you can possibly grip a little tighter on the shaft.
