Z axis; level of force required to turn it


I’m in the process of unpacking everything and have manually turned the Z Drive cog, but noticed it was very very difficult to rotate manually. Is that normal? I had to turn the screw drive via the pulley and it was with great effort.

Is this a good question?

Never mind. I located the tension clamp that's underneath the Z axis table on the screw drive and loosened it a bit. That resolved that issue.

It does not spin easily, but you should be able to turn it with your fingers.

It was so tight that the Z Drive motor could not operate. It's resolved now that I located the tensioning clamp underneath the table on the screw drive and loosened it enough to operate smoothly.
