Yes I got the aluminum arms, they have been working great, I have noticed from some reason even with the aluminum arms one side sits a bit lower than the other, makes for fun leveling. I also had a new build plat machined, that it a little thicker, and the HBP is contained in a pocket to counter act warp.
Have you done the aluminum arm upgrade yet? I found the stock plastic arms were not dimensionally stable over temperature.

I did another run to fix an issue and now have a new file. Did again and now have a really tight fitting jig. Included are two spreads to preload the jig so instalation is quick. Just open the clamps and hold open with the raised part on the rectangle pieces. When in place (narrow side up) just pop the off the pieces holding the jaws open. It's now on tight.
Anidotal note: My first set printed fine and worked well for me. A freind went with a Rep1 and printed a set, then another, on the third he came over, tossed then in my lap stating 'your better than this, fix it'. He was correct, they were junk because my stl was junk. So I redesigned it right this time. Now it's 'wow went on easy, hope they can come off agian'. They do and the HBP does not drift up over time do to fibration. Sorry (thx fastrack) I didn't pursue the issue when first mentions in the replies.
