I was looking at my K40 in preparation for doing Russ Sadler’s Xtreeem updates and it had me looking again at that front cover plate which hides the Y axis belt drive system. It had to wondering about belt adjustment and realized the belt adjustments(s) are at the other end(back of the machine).
To adjust the belts the whole motion frame would need to be removed.
Had the Y axis motor and drive gear system been mounted in the back of the machine, not only could the Y axis belt adjustments be made through vent holes in the front but it would also add about 40mm of travel to the Y axis.
Has anyone seen this or done such a modification?
