mine are standard threads, i would think that would make it worse but vs maxnc its apples to apples with diamater and nut type as variables
seemed wonky but shit works

then how come so many backlash nuts have gone to shit
this seems like a common issue in #linuxcnc
ah thats true maybe nylon
no theyre usually plastic
im not ive ever heard anyone complaining about the split brass nuts in there
no i mean the sping loaded ones
ive seen that, those are just tight fitting, no?
right i think mine does better because it engages like maybe 15 threads and its more circumfrence to grab

rab: delrin is god plastic
but yeah im very happy with my brass thing, simple as it is
it seems to perform as well as the anti-backlash nuts, and it isnt
and its servicable
right i think because higher operating temps and hardness it wears to fit instead of deforms
rab: right i think thats why delrin works well where a lot of plastics dont
rapiding back and forth sounds like a normal machining cycle, small part, high feed rate

theirs are supported on both ends
but when my backlash is shit i turn a set screw in brass nut like 1/4 turn and shit is fixed
and by shit i mean like ~.003

taig screw is same pitch, 2x diameter
seeing that screw next to a finger seems unreal

macegr: did you dip your maxnc in vactra no2 yet?
only 100% more!
anyway my thing is anodized aluminum on aluminum and brass and been fine, prob help where its stickier at the ends, which prob helps keep backlash consistent
