Just curious how this removes hysteresis from the Z axis.  Does it reduce wobble?

By pre-loading the bed down (in addition to the weight of the bed), you force the drive screw to always go to the lower side of the driven z-axis thread rather than sometimes sticking.

Nice! 
 This would be better than my glue and cap :)
