Adjustable Brace for the 2 beds of Prusa y axis

Helps to stiffen the y axis if you are using the spring assembly method described in the reprap prusa wiki.

Once installed on my prusa it greatly improved the print quality and reduced the backlash greatly also.


Print 2 of the braces

Mark the braces' screw holes on the edge of your bed

Pre drill the holes

Use small wood screws to fix to bed

Although i have not tried it i think it would work on aluminium beds if you pre drill the edge of the bed tap the holes and use bolts to fix it.
