Re: Belt tracking issue after adjusting EXOS2 RA drive train.

Wes Mcdonald


That last point of Bob’s is important.  That screw head can interfere with your motor when you go to position it.  The motor ends up rocking on the head of the screw and that prevents you from getting things parallel.   Replace it with a set screw to get rid of the head.  There is apparently just enough variability in the belt lengths or other mechanical tolerance that the screw is either just barely out of the way or just barely too high. I had one axis the interfered and one that didn’t.
