Upgraded my rods to hardened Misumi rods. Replaced linear bearings with JSB. I guess I have a couple questions.
Are the bearings supposed to sound “crunchy” (for the lack of a better word)? My X Axis seems fine, Z does not move fast enough for me to notice, however, the Y axis is the one I really hear it from. Could it be due to slight binding? I noticed that in replacing the igus bearings with JSB linear ball bearings, it is a hair thicker and causes the single bearing holders to open slightly wider and that made it hard for me to line up each bearing holder with the screw holes.
I get this funny wavy pattern on the Z axis now, presumably it’s from all the crunching.
That said though, I’m testing print speeds at 100 mm/s and it seems to be doing good. There’s definitely no more slop like the IGUS bearings had.
