The lead screws are straight and work very smoothly on my machine.
This leadscrew works well with the nut blocks sold by openbuilds, but be aware that it is not 100% compatible with other brands that you might find on Amazon. Though the specs are the same, this is slightly smaller and will not work with non compatible nut blocks sold elsewhere. However, quality is excellent and performance is superior to no-name amazon brands.
great lead screws! necessary to get things moving with c-beam’s. The openbuilds version are nice quality!
This lead screw works for me. It's pretty darned straight most of the time, but not perfect. But then again, when you buy leadscrews from McMaster, you're also going to get a little bow in theirs. I would just get these screws because they match up perfectly with the other products readily available at OpenBuilds.
Solid 8mm lead screw. Will be a nice improvement on my z axis.
