Don't tighten the screws completely at this step, but rather after all the frame has been assembled; leave them loose. It also helps if you can slide the screws from side to side in the slots (this may require you to cut out some paint with a razor blade or other tool). This will help in squaring up the whole assembly towards the end of the build.

It's easier to insert the makerslide into the Y axis plates before you put the end plate on. As an alternative to steps 11 and 12:

  1. open up the vwheel spacing (rotate the eccentric nuts so the top/bottom wheels are far apart).
  2. Insert the makerslide lengths into the wheels.
  3. Position the entire gantry assembly close to the edge of your workbench with the makerslide overhanging the edge of the bench.
  4. Bolt end-plate on.
