Maker slide adjustment

Postby cozmicray » Sun Oct 07, 2012 8:19 pm

Is there a site out there that addresses the adjustment of a makerslide?
How much drag on wheels, how much slop in bearings?

I have a couple on a OrdBot Hadron.

Why is it so difficult to get Makerslide parts and extrusions?
I believe it has been out since Mar 2012.

Any website about Makerslide I have visited are TERRIBLE!

Makerslide is available at

Install the wheels at the widest setting. When placed on the Makerslide rail the wheels will probably be loose. Adjust the eccentric nut until the wheels touch the rails. Do not over tighten the wheels or you may put a flat spot on them.
