you very much for your measuring the parallelism of the x-rods at
to your good printers! I am happy for you!
was suffering from the very beginning by x-offset and rattle, also
with excessive lubrication!.
35.4 to the left and 34.0 to the right (Distance from upper top to
bottom of lower x-rods), I had no chance hammering onto the rods on
my so far so good JGaurora5 Printer .
bad luck I got a “sick dog”, but cured now with my ABS-clamps,
pressing the x-rods guides to the left together with brutal 30 N
force for parallelism!
Wayne said: You have no chance, so use it!
was wrong, there is always a chance, but requires a lot of effort.
make sense if I write a letter to the JGaurora company about my x-rod
propose a final check at the x-rods before delivering the printer to
I do not
expect to get a replacement, since I could solve the problem
respecting the advice of my wife to measure the parallelism. I am not
prood that I did not got this elementary idea earlier by myself!

JGaurora5 printer operates now perfectly after trimming the two
x-rods to parallelism within +/-0.05mm by my additional ABS-claps .
more rattle and x-offset with normal lubrication!
suffered a long time at this problem, purchasing replacment axial
ball bearings (still suboptimall like the original), not comparable
with good Swiss bearings, but not available in JGaurora5 dimensions
I was „barking below the wrong tree“ as we say in German.. Even
with suboptimal x-bearings a proper operations is possible if the
x-rods are parallel within +/0.1mm!
write a Wiki proposal for people, suffering like my about x-Offset
problems! Many Thanks
