I've just ft these braces and found that if I tighten them at all it introduces wobble into my Y axis. I had to loosen the braces right off and redo all the M8 nuts on the Y axis threaded rods to get it sitting solidly level again. On subsequently attempting to tighten the braces, I find any additional tension introduced into the system causes the feet of the front piece to lift off my workbench (again introducing wobble to the Y axis). Starting to get the feeling my printer was doing pretty well without any additional bracing! I think I may need to add Y axis braces before I can actually tighten my hulk braces..
