Step 1 — Getting Started ¶
Some pointers on assembling the V_Wheels here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=14...
Note: In that video he talks about a divot on the eccentric spacer. Unfortunately, the eccentrics no longer have that feature.
Some pictures for this guide are available here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mgl5wes11hiu33...
Step 2 — Wheel Assembly ¶
The wheel assembly order is bearing, wheel, insert washer, bearing.
Use a table and something hard to press it together.
Step 3 ¶
The eccentrics use a regular and special washer on the plate side.
The eccentrics fit in the larger plate hole. Wheels using spacers do not use any washers.
The X and Y wheels mount with the nut against the wheel as shown in the second picture.
The Z Wheels mount with the screw head against the wheel as shown in the third picture.
