Linier Bearing question
« on: March 25, 2013, 01:27:28 PM »
I?m currently working on a Prusa i3 and just got the frame all put together. The linier bearings I have seem to be what I think is a bit stiff. Can anyone tell me how easily the bearings should travel over the rods? To give you an idea of what I?m talking about the Z axis will hang in place without any support. This may all be fine, but having never built one I just wanted to ask.

Holy crap, sorry I haven't checked this board in a while.  LM8UUs shouldn't hold onto the rod that tightly!  They should be easy to move, but without much wiggle in them.
