Items you need for this step:

Picture coming soon3Ballscrew with metal nut (contains little metal balls inside)
3Nut holder
2Low profile M5 60mm screw
2Nylon insert lock nut M5
28mm ID 16mm OD bearing
28mm shim
8Low profile M5 15mm screw
2Y end plate

1. Attach the ABS or delrin nut holder to the metal ballscrew nut

Important: NEVER remove the ballscrew nut from the screw! There are tiny little metal balls that will fall out and that are impossible to put correctly in again – it will require to buy and ship a new ballscrew nut

Use 2 60mm screws with nylon lock nuts:

2. Attach the ballscrew to the end plates

Take a C beam and already place the ballscrew in it:

Position the nut so that the full plastic side is facing upwards:

Now at the 8mm side, already attach the Y end plate – use 4 low profile 15mm screws for that – and with the direction in such a way so that you can fit a bearing in it from the outside. Already add the 8mm ID 16mm OD bearing:

Then take an 8mm precision shim:
Slide it on the end of the screw:
Then take the supplied circlip
And attach it. Use the optional pliers if necessary
Do this for the other Y rail as well
