Replaced LM8UU bearings in X-axis Carriage with self-changing, self-aligning sintered bronze bushings.
Drilled out bearing holes with 5/eight” (approx 15.eighty two mm) HSS drill little bit, employed Q-Idea soaked in acetone to cleanse up the holes. Did the same to alter the X-axis Loafer arms on the left aspect to alter for a modest discrepancy in the rail dimensions.
Operates incredibly quiet now compared to the ball bearings.
