This is a drop in replacement of the original.
On this remix I kept the design of the original but had to fix a few mistakes in the dimensions to make it fit with the Prusa I3 Vanilla source DXF file's dimensions.*
The original version of this will brake when you go to tighten them down as the dimensions were about 0.6mm off and upon re-dimensioning I discovered that the original Prusa I3 Y-Plate's LM8UU holes were not centered either. Rather odd Josef Prusa would not have centered the M3 screw holes within the LM8UU hole. Another oddity with the vanilla is that the hole (the non fileted portion) is not the LM8UU's 24mm long but instead is 23mm. shrug
I also redesigned the mount by making the legs thicker to help support the bearings more than the original did as well.
*This should work on the I3 as well as one had no issues but someone else said their I3 was about a paper's thickness too close (possibly due to the Rework having taller Y corners).
