Hi Leo,

I made this brace and it worked well to stabilize the frame, very well. However for me like someone else mentioned, for what ever reason there was no gap between the bottom support and the x-carriage stepper motor. I am wondering if it is because I have a newer A8, just received about a month ago and maybe it's slight different than yours. I thought I could sand off the excess but once the brace is tightened it sticks out nearly one full mm beyond the motor so I'm not sure sanding it the way to go in this case. Any suggestions?
