may have different hole spacing to originals

munge 'extrusion_width' factor to fix, or replace with renamed factor perhaps.

if you know the original hole spacing, leave a comment!

I have 2 hole, distance 18 mm. This object very good! But it have 10 mm between hole.

time for me to add a hole_spacing variable I suppose, will comment again when I've uploaded (unless you beat me to it and post a derivative!)

On it! Although, I'm sure you might've been able to work something better out. I just made a bit of a hackish go at it.

Nice work, I spent some time trying to design up a belt tensioner like this but it was so big and klunky I never published it. I will be printing this one and installing it!

Good part, it's in my standard build now, thanks!

I print another ram to go with the Greg Frost X carriage's tightener.
