Ok, stupid question, do you run the same bolt through all 3 of the boxes, or is it one box to get the size indicated on each box?

One bolt need run through all 3 of the boxes. After last bolt be good.

Simple and very usefull. Thank you for your work

Mine did not work because tap have too much play against the bearing.

That one have a shank diameter of 5.3mm. Mine is the same and it have too much play. I probably need one with shank diameter of 6mm to fit the bearing exactly.

??????? ???????? ???????! ?????????!

Very interesting video. Thanks

Excellent guide! Thanks for sharing this!

Do you need a specific hardness tap? Will any tap cut the bolt? i'd like to try this.

No, it is not specific tap. It is a normal tap for M6 screw.

Nobody understands what you're talking in the video!

Turn on subtitles and read on english =)

Ah, automatic subtitles, I forgot :-D
