M5 nut adapter for M8 Receptacle. I made this to use with M5 Z leadscrews.
instead of remix the X-Ends with M5 receptacles just use this simple adapter
Before trying this mod please read this instructions completely.
I made this mod on my Prusa because I couldn't easily couple a 8mm leadscrew to a 5mm shaft without wobble.
Coupling 5mm to 5mm is way easier! Just use a 6,35mm tubing and voila! looks nice too!
M5 Leadscrews also reduce the torque needed on the Z axis stepper, so you can turn the driver amps down a little and have cooler motors.
Done! Now enjoy the Z axis wobble reduction and the sexy look of your Prusa!
