I just printed a set and will make it up tomorrow night to see what it look like
How loose should the 'barrel' be in the large hole? For me its too tight to get it through, so i am going to have to file it out a bit.. Should I aim for it to be a snug fit, or does it matter if its a bit floppy.
Also, the M3 holes on the sides are a bit small.. My printer (Printrbot) always tends to flatten them a little, but had no problems with the official Prusa parts and other upgrades.. But yours are really small.. So I think I might have to drill them to size...
There was an updated version of the frame mount piece. I hope that you saw that update. The hex holes were too narrow on the originally posted model.
I noticed that the m3 holes were a little tight on my printed pieces due to elephants foot. After I cleaned up a little flashing they were snug. The barrel should be able to rotate slightly as it’s adjusted. It can be a little on the looser side considering once it’s under tension it shouldn’t move.
The middle holes should be slots (see the first page to see the slots I’m referring to). The lower pivot holes are supposed to be for a 3mm pin on the adjuster arm. Only one side of the adjuster arm has a thru hole. The other side is counterbored so the pin stops at a certain point.
