Squeaky nut on Y Axis


We have three pocket NC in the University Makerspace that I’m responsible for. One of the machines (a V2-10) has developed a nasty grinding screech from the Y axis leadscrew nut.

I’ve cleaned the leadscrew thoroughly with IPA had the problem resolve temporarily. It has now come back though, & I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions about how to go about resolving it.


Hello Jay,

The first thing to try is applying synthetic grease to the anti-backlash nut and the hole (or bushing) the lead screw rests in.

If the noise persists, then contact us at service@pocketnc.com for more troubleshooting steps.

That’s brilliant - thanks Chuck.
