Missing Part and Suggestions for Assembly

V2 machine.

Turns out I’m short two 35mm spacers.

Coupler Problems. One was too small to accept a lead screw. Another had a small blockage not allowing a lead screw to insert all the way. I fixed both by the use of a cordless drill and some sand paper.

Inserting a washer between the coupler and the flanged bearing is not so intuitive. I removed the motor, inserted the washer and attached the coupler and then reinstalled the motor.

Tomorrow I’m off to the local hardware store. Wish me luck.

Here in Idaho Falls we have Home Depot, Lowes, two Ace Hardware and one Truevalue. None had metric aluminum spacers so I opted for 1 inch spacers and I’ll have to take a hack saw two a couple. $5 later.

Maybe update the manual with the correct parts in the photos. Mainly the Z axis.
