VAT-Frame correction

November 29th, 2011 No comments

I have missed something during the VAT-Frame build. Someones sharp eye pointed it out.

Between the U shape profile VAT base and the L shape sides of the VAT frame there are small screws that protrude.


It is a set screw with a M4 collar. It is used to set the VAT to be parallel and at a specific start distance from the build base.

This is what it looks like only smaller:

The inside diameter is M4, but the screw itself is M2.5 thread. The bolt is 30mm x M2.5

Sorry! and Thanks for pointing that out.

L-Bracket for build base

November 29th, 2011 4 comments

Scored some 80/20 L-shape brackets. Finally! Four pieces to be exact.

I bought some M8 bolts too. I can start the Build base tomorrow.

Wish you have a great build day!
