HE280 Rev B with Max v2?

Post by actinium226 »

I finally decided to grab the HE280, but I now see on the product page that the Rev B version is "not guaranteed to work with the Max V2"? What exactly does that mean?

I'm not sure. You might want to email support about that. ([email protected])

I bought the HE280 to put on my max V2, and there is a problem.

I upgraded the original lasercut skates with the trick laser trick trucks.

Now I see a problem. the barbells that fit on the cheapskates will not fit on either the trick trucks or the lasercut skates.

best solution (that I see at the moment) would be to make an adapter that screws into the trick-trucks, and has the raised mounting bosses that the barbells need to screw into. Has someone made a 3d model that I could use to solve this? It would be pretty simple, and might be better than me trying to machine 3 identical parts out of aluminium.

I guess another option would be to drop another $59 bucks for the molded cheapskates that have the mounting boss - are the cheapskates as good or better than the trick trucks?

Am I seeing this correctly? Does anyone have a better solution?

The injection molded trucks from SeeMeCNC don't require adjustment - you just install and go.

I'm Tempted, But Idesigned a mount that I have to make onmy mill. 1/2"x1"x3" times 3, 5 holes each, 3 tapped, and 3 areas I have to hog out some.
I think I can do all the hogging with the three parts clamped together in the vise (same for the drilling).

The annoyance is the mill is in the garage at sub-freezing temperatures with a bunch of crap in the way.

So I ned to just get out there and do it, Ihave a nice blank 1/2x1.25x15 that I cut the three blanks out of, so no excuse that I don't have the material. Although I think my taps are at work...


If I do this, the position of the arms will probably be about 1/4" closer to the center of the build plate. Will that cause problems, or is it an easy fix???

Moving the arms in 1/4" at the top shouldn't present any insurmountable issues. You should be able to calibrate out the difference.

I'm glad the position of the top of the arms won't hurt things. I actually don't know where it will end up, as the trick trucks are so thin that even with my adapter they might be moving out 1/4" instead of in.

The other factor is that while I will have to spend time fabbing these, if I had gone with the cheapskates then I would still have to spend the time to assemble them and get them adjusted and all. the trick trucks are already in position.

Thanks Gene.

Sooo, I am betting that the stock trick trucks and the original lasercut skates have slightly different endpoints than the cheapskates. Which I would have been living with all this time anyway.

The injection molded cheapskates don't require adjustment. They're designed so that when they're installed on the rail, the wheels grip with the correct tension. They go together with three screws. Not a whole lot of assembly work there. ;) You'll spend 10x the time fabbing your own vs buying the IM skates, and then you'll still have to fiddle with the adjustments when you're done.

Here's the instructions for assembling them: https://seemecnc.dozuki.com/Guide/Carriage+Assembly/59?lang=en
