Need new limit switch- Z axis lets go and destroyed it. Part

Post by almus » Mon Sep 12, 2016 8:08 pm

I noted that other(s) have had the issue of the z axis slipping back under the tension of the springs. In my case,
the Z axis slammed back so hard to "0" that it destroyed the limit switch. Machine is shapeoko 3 only about ~1 month old

Where does one find spare replacement parts? Is there a digikey part number for the swithch?
I can just resolder if I can find the right one that fits the hole pattern etc.

Help!

Thanks

Yes, the one Will referenced is the correct part number.

Note that this is the same answer that was given to you in your other thread (Z axis "jumps" up at a certain point) where you asked the same question.
