I have printed these and tried them on my dual x-as.
This works even better then with screws and bolts, and you cannot even see them.
Thanks! ! ! !
These will connect two extrusions together as the description states. I used them to double up the rails on my modified Shapeoko CNC mill to reduce the spindle deflection. The printed parts align and hold the rails together while I reassembled the machine.

To assemble you will need to hammer the joiners into the extrusions. It is normal for a bit of plastic to scrape off as they go together. I designed them to be a very tight fit to insure the rails are pulled together.
If working on longer spans, I would recommend using a rod to drive the connectors to the middle of the span (print 2 sets).
