MGN12 rails update – Fitted and The printer moves!

Finally bit the bullet and stopped printing stuff long enough to shove the rails on the printer……..

And, the carriages fit perfectly!

The movement of the blocks is very nice and smooth  – though right now, no real notable difference from the V-wheels……

Fitting the rails is exceedingly easy – Put light score marks on the 4040 where the 2020 crosses over the top..this will help you re-position the 2020’s

I personally purchased NEW 2020 extrusion (about £3.50 a piece from Banggood) and ready mounted the MGN12 rails, to the new extrusions so all I had to do was to attach some corner brackets and bolt it down………

But, as always, there’s some slight teething problems…………
