Problems centering work area

Post by JBravo » Thu Oct 10, 2019 10:01 am

Hi

I've been using my MPX 90 for maybe 3 years now and have always used the flat bed as I could never get anything to center on the vice.

I have been engraving some perfectly round charms which are a pain to hold on the flat bed so I dug the vice out again. My print head is perfectly aligned to the flat bed, but whenever I use the vice the centre is out by at least 5mm on both x and y axis. I could adjust the print head but then I would have to correct it again for the flat bed.

I have noticed that the centre of the flat bed is not the same as the center of the vice on either access and changes when I turn it around.

Can anyone shed any light on this because I'm baffled.

Thanks
