A problem solved


Recommended Posts

The other night I was having a bit of trouble with eratic guiding.


Went out and looked at the mount and noticed the Dec motor was at a funny angle.





Then I spotted the crack in the casting






After a quick and dirty temp fix I did get a few usable images.



yesterday aevening I cut a block of aluminium into an "L" shape on the band saw and then onto the milling machine.


After a few hours an new motor block was formed, installed and tested.


Yippeee round stars again



Finished off this afters and readjusted the new bit looks a little beefier
