She slides so smooth

It grows

More parts have arrived (it’s like Christmas!)

Namely some 8mm steel rods, skate bearings (608zz) and Igus pillow block bearings.  This means I now have parts moving (sliding) on the machine!

You can either use linear bearings (LM8UU) or the Igus block bearings however you must print out the relative parts to fit either bearing.

Why didn’t I use linear bearings? Well, the block bearings are quieter, smoother and look more professional.  We’ll see how it goes when I start using the printer.
