We made a redesign of the idler and motor mount as they flexed a bit too much. These files are only in .stl as we do not currently have access to FreeCAD because of licensing issues between Fedora and OpenCascade. If someone using FreeCAD wants to make these in FreeCAD it would be greatly appreciated.

Added double bearing idler that does not need fender washers.


-Exchange with standard Y motor mount and idler.

FWIW, I've updated these two files on the Official MendelMax page with my own improved versions. I personally far prefer my version of the Idler mount that is only blocked on one end. That makes it much easier to access the belt if you are making changes to your Y axis.

jtaylor, the extrusions came from Misumi.

Great idea. I just broke my single idler mount while trying to tighten up the drive belt. I'm replacing it temporarily with aluminum angle stock.

can I ask where you got your extruded aluminum tslot from?

If you go to http://MendelMax.comMendelMax.com you can find a list of sources. Misumi has far and away the best prices.
