Taping flat stock to X-axis (original X-carve)

Hi everyone, currently new to the forum but have been using the original X-carve for a while. Currently looking for a way to strengthen the X-axis.

I’ve read from the forums that people have used flat stock to bolt it on or use T-beam/I-beam aluminium to hold it in place.

I don’t want to drill into my makerslides though and don’t really have access to get T/I beam aluminium. I do have access to flat stock aluminium though. Wondering if anyone has tried to use tape on some flat stock and wedge it in between both makerslides. Strong double-sided tape of course. What’s the result like?

Or, is there any other alternative that doesn’t require me to drill holes in the machine?
