Check your mounting surfaces

I finally got around to putting my machine together today after having it for over a year. When I put the journeyman rail on top of the y axis I noticed they didn’t sit flush. After having a closer look I noticed that the extrusion was dented like it’s was dropped during the manufacturing process or something. My shipping box was perfect and the dent was done before the anodizing cause it wasn’t scratched. I ended up filing it flat and it sat flush. Just make sure you check your machine before final assembly.

Hey Pablo,

thanks for sharing this!

I’ve been thinking for a while about a checklist for unpacking, before assembling. I have made a note of this. I have among other things also this possible problem in it.
