Is anyone else seeing unusual wear on the rods used for the Y axis on a Taz 6? This Taz is about 6 months old and showing wear on the rods. This is also happening on X axis but to a lesser degree. I would have thought Lulzbot would have used hardened chrome rods but guess not. We contacted support and they said this is ‘normal’ and to clean the rods with steel wool, which we did. Now they are squeaking. Maybe its time for some Wd40 … We have ordered new rods and bearings since this is a production machine and need it to stay up.
I was just wondering if this is ‘normal’ and if anyone else has this problem.
