I’ve had a few instances of items getting stuck between the y-axis gantry mounts and the mounting blocks on the table. This usually results in an “Oh $**t” moment, lost steps, and a ruined project. Now granted, I should keep unnecessary items off my table but bad habits are bad habits.
I decided to install some preventative measures today. I had some leftover 3/4" aluminum angle from my drag chain install (didn’t end up using it on the y-axis) so I decided to put it to good use today. I mounted a 3ft length of angle on between the y-axis mounting blocks and the spoilboard. This should help keep items from getting wedged between the gantry sliders and the table or mounts.
