Not tapping Makerslide

Postby JuKu » Fri Sep 06, 2013 5:03 am

FYI: Misumi self-tapping screw HTJ5 is compatible with Makerslide. In other words, this worked for me:

Standard torx25 bit in power screwdriver, held Makerslide firmly. Pressing hard to the tabletop with one hand is enough, I didn't need a vice (but I'm a big guy, YMMV). Screw the bolt as far as it goes, back up, repeat. Second or third time it will go all the way in. Take bolt out, insert plate and washer and screw it back. Done.

Very useful information, thank you! I'll add a few of these to my next Misumi order.
