You can try to sand and polish your pipes if they are a little too rough. This jig is great, I’ve used it myself:

(as long as you have the right conduit size though!!)

Yes tubes are 25.4mm, and they are Steel polished.

Okay, if it’s hard to move them, then make sure any bolt holding a bearing with plastic on both sides is loose. Basically the nut is just there to keep the bolt from falling out. If it’s still tight, use it for a while, the plastic will loosen a bit over time.


Example, see that long bolt in your picture on the left side? That’s what I’m talking about by plastic on both sides of the bearing. Loosen any of those bolts so it’s not squeezing the plastic.


Thanks Barry, I will lose all of them, but this one in the left is too lose :slight_smile:


Hi Barry, if I lose the screws, all gantry gets loose, seems that it make the piece tight to the tubes.


Okay, tighten them up a little and just use it for a while. It could be that your printer is just printing a little small.
