here’s the mod I made today for stiffening the X-Axis and the V-Wheels mod.
1 hour of work for the moment, still need to modify the 2 Z-Axis V-Wheels as I need to find what kind of screw to use.
The mods are totally reversible, and X-Axis mod don’t need any drilling.
Eccentric nut mod are something that should be put in the assembly instruction, a real timesaver!
Below are some pic. Parts used:
For X-Axis mod:
- Nr. 8 cap head screw M4x50
- Nr. 16 (one on top one on the bottom) 6,3 (or 6,4) millimeter washer
For Eccentric nut:
- Standard screw that come with the machine
- 5,3 (or 5,4) mm washer
- M5 nilock nut
- Loctite 243 glue
For the Z-Axis:
