Ah, thank you very much indeed! I just found it from the description 14min after you replied.

Today I got done almost all of the fixturing - still need to file/sand the sliders to actually fit, now that I finally understood how they are meant to work.

Browsing your other creations mod out of curiousity I came across your y axis standalone mod and suddenly realise I may have made a terrible mistake with the bed here - I somehow forgot the holes were meant to carry wheels, and in my aggressive operations to "compensate for having printed everything 0.315mm too big" (took the time to calibrate my horizontal offset, very well worth it) I expanded the big holes all the way up to 8mm. Might be that tomorrow I'll be glad I have yet to take the printer apart: it stands ready to clean up my mistakes when need be.

(As was the case with the support stands. In trying to heat fit the nuts inside the slots - in this particular geometry quite a hard job really - I both messed up the part beyond repair and burnt my hands in a manner that has taught me to respect the ol' soldering tool in a whole new way. Reprinted, and turns out the damn nuts were meant to be a press fit to begin with.)

Anyway, here's the progress today!
