Thanks for this! If anyone is interested, I made a custom Z end stop that's longer (so I can use both screws on the end stop) and the screw hits the end of the prong on the end stop. My custom end stop

This works great. Thanks a lot!

I added an plate on the end of the adjustment screw. Attached. If you wish to add it to your thing. Please do so.
Oh; Added later. A longer end stop would help. I'm making one now. Check back later

I will definitely be printing one of these off ASAP! And while I'm at it, I'll print a http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1177943 too since I keep stripping and breaking mine! Thanks!

Stronger Z End Stop Mount for Folger i3 2020 8mm bar

Thanks, just what I was looking for!

Glad it helped!

Can you tell me what mount you used for the endstop? . I tried pvjpvj's endstop but I think I have to mirror ir to get it on the correct side. I'm actually using it but managed to get it all lined up with only one screw, which isn't secure enough.

Right now I'm just using the stock endstop mount that came with the printer. Pvjpvj's looks like a decent thing to do, I just haven't gotten around to it yet since the stock is working fine now. If your using repetier or matter control or something similar, mirroring should be as easy as clicking a setting.

I printed your part but my stock FT endstop mount would not let the bolt line up with the switch AT ALL for some reason.

This is a fantastic idea! I haven't played with it yet. While you're at it, consider printing a sturdier z end stop mount for the Folger i3 2020 at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1177943

That looks like it would help make a great zaxis. I'll have to print one off!
