Simply and perfect. Work very well on my chinese Prusa i3

Hmm. The G+ link seems to have gone dead. Anyhow, the gist of the conversation was this: These isolators will minimize Z wobble artifacts, but in doing so, introduce another smaller effect. The wobbling screw causes these to turn the nut slightly, raising or lowering the Z axis slightly. So, these don't get rid of Z wobble, they reduce it to be invisible under whatever else the printer has going on. If you are pursuing the highest print quality, you have to properly isolate Z from the screws: more complex isolation that doesn't turn the nuts, straight screws, more rigid guidance, whatever your machine needs.

Easy...if you don't happen to have access to SolidWorks.
