I don't want to wait for glue! Drilling the Prusa Mendel's bottom plate and screwing these bushings in is much faster. Also you can take them off easily if they break or wear out.
Default values are for #6 screws, but thats easy to change. YAY parameterization!
You bolt them on instead of glue, pretty self explanatory. At first I was worried that using one bolt would cause problematic torsion, but in practice that dosen't seem to be a problem at all. Make sure you mark where to drill accurately. I used the bushings themselves as a template. If you don't want infill, you better make the tabs thin.
