Platform Leveling Trick
by haqnmaq, published
This version uses stuff that I had lying around the house. It uses springs out of a mechanical pencil (which fit perfectly over the bolts), to make it easier to level the build platform. It might take a little bit of the stress of the extruder nozzle, to prevent it from breaking your extruder, if it is laying down too much plastic also.

I used the thumbwheels from http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... to make it even easier. I had a problem when applying new kapton or painters tape, when applying pressure the whole platform lowers and the nuts loose its position in the bolt, so you have to re-level again.
Using the 8 thumbwheels and nuts, I locked each nut against each other across the wood so the bolts won't lower even if the springs allow the HBP to move a little when under pressure :D
For the nut on the bottom (bottomest), how does a thumb nut from McMaster-Carr look to anyone else? Thinking about buying some
