Very easy and fast Z-Axis adjustment modification

Post by GGY » Sun Apr 13, 2014 4:04 am

Hi all,
Just sharing my recent modification to the z-axis fine adjustment. Felix 3.0
I thought the original adjustment block is very hard to reach and at times looses the position due to loose adj screw.
I have added the STL files for anyone interested.
Cheers GGY
