[title] X Axis Assembly
[* black] WithIn the tapped end of the 20602060-450mm extrusion to the right place 2 T-nuts in outside slots slot 1 and same in slot 3 on the front. Loosely tighten the 90 Degree Brackets to them, approximately 30mm from the edge of the extrusion.
[* black] PlaceOn the tapped end place 1 T-nut in the middle slot about 20mm from the end. Assemble on a m5-25 screw the following. bearingfollowing: bearing, washer, bearing, washer, bearing, washer and one small D plate with two holes ( 3 bearings, 3 washers). It may be required to add extra washers to ensure the screw does not hit the bottom of the extrusion.

[* black] Loosely tighten this assembly to the T-nut you installed in the middle slot of the X, either inline (or a bit farther out) with with leftmost 90 Degree Bracket. You might need to add washers if the screw is too long and bottoms out against the extrusion. (D plate shown below. Used in the X and Y belt idler bearing assemblies)
[* black] Place a pulley on the motor, and attach the mounting plate to the motor - mind the wire orientation we want the wire facing down when complete. PlaceOn the untapped end place a T-nut in slot 1 and 3 on the rightmost side, and attach the motor plate, with the motor flush with the extrusion end.
[* icon_note] Installblack] On the X Carriage install 4 wheels with no the V cut in the centeras shown. The nut mounts to wheel side as outlined in the wheel documentation. Slide the X Carriage on to the assembled X Extrusion.
