I thought the Taz 6 had 12mm Y rods. Turns out it doesn’t. So, i’m making them anyways. The Openbuilds project is probably still a better quality option, this one should be much less expensive and not involve drilling the bed plate.
So far the main hurdle I am encountering is that the version 2.4 Y end model is pretty much thrashed to the point I can’t import it (there are issues with the main 10mm rod shaft in the part, they go back to 2.2 for sure. So i’m rebuulding it off the older ones that I already have clones of.
It looks like it will fit ok, the single bearing holder in 12mm is going to need some modification since the bearing case sticks past the plane, and the bed may end up 1mm taller. Anyone want any other features in there while I am at it?
