I was just moving my table around and all of the sudden the Y-axis stopped moving. I checked movement on the other axis with my jog shuttle and they are working fine. This happened when I was trying to reference all axis on the machine.
I can hear the motor turning, but the table doesn't move with it. If I push on the table in the same direction while driving the motor with the jog shuttle, I can get the table to move, but any disturbance in the movement and the table stops moving again.
Is my y-axis slipping? I am afraid of damaging my machine.
Thank ahead of time for any advise.
As I recall, the Y axis also has a spider shaft coupling on it to handle misalignment. You might want to check it while you have the cover off.
