Washer on Rod Ends? (not the nut end)

Post by guitartoys »


Finally getting to wrapping up my Z-Axis, and in looking at the Rod Ends, I had a question.

My Rod Ends have a squared flat surface, but more tapered. So I was wondering should I put a washer on the rod end, then screw it into the Z-Bed-Arm RodEnd-Support and then put a nut on it.

Or are you wanting the Rod End to essentially dig into the Z-Bed-Arm RodEnd-Support to help keep it vertical.

Back to making sure my Z Rails are square, and finishing up the HD-9 XY.
