Prusa i3 mk2 x-ends for 22mm leadscrew nut
by bbandi

I have seen them, too. Now I did a rework on the original prusa parts because my igus bearings did not sit tight enough. I decreased the radius of the original ones and edited them to fit a 22mm nut. Will post them as a thing when mounted.

Ahh okay. How are you finding the igus bearings on the z axis. Is it worth the upgrade?

I don't know as I never had LM8UU bearings on my z-axis. I had directly build with igus bearings on all axises. The photo above was only from a fit check during build (visible by the skewed lead screw, which was not fixed).

And just out of interest what endstops/mounts are you using?

On x/y axis I am using toolson's enstop (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1037870 & https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1054680) mounts with makerbot endstops. For the Z axis I have a capacitive sensor with auto bed leveling installed.
