I was quite unhappy with the LM8UU or bronze bearings that I had, and I really like the igubal plastic bearings, but there was no good way to use them on the x carriage. So we made one :)
Uses igus 8mm pillow block style bearings.
Bearings attach to the bottom, mounted upside down. Screw directly into the plastic bosses, no nuts required. I recommend using a washer under each screwhead.
