Extra Wide Makerslide

This may be of interest for members with a SO1 or SO2 unit.

Yup, I bought a 1 meter length for my S2 expansion. It’s good extrusion, black anodized, well packaged and shipped quickly. It’s also already tapped, which is a bonus. I’m not sure if the width is the same, because this is made for the XCarve’s carriage, so I might have to add washers to the carriage standoffs or cut them down slightly. I’ll post those details as I work on the expansion project.

The width is different from the SO2 and you’ll need to adjust your carriage setup.

I’d suggest getting correctly sized spacers — I’m pretty sure the both Carbide 3D and Inventables source their spacers from: http://www.aluminumspacers.com/
