Help needed K40 Laser cutter

Post by TreeSqueak » Thu Oct 15, 2020 6:49 am

Hello, I have a K40 laser cutter that has worked great using inkscape and K40Whisperer since I got it.

I removed the origional base plate (working surface/ bit I place the 3mm MDF on) and installed a new one that I made with adjustable legs.
I wanted to be able to raise the bottom right hand corner as for some reason that spot needed to be higher.

anyway, Ive just turned it back on and now it isnt working correctly, when it moves on the Y axis t makes a grinding noice and doesnt move as far as it should.

I'm hoping someone can make a suggestion for me.
