    Hey man. I'm loving that v-wheel carrier for stopping the shaft from spinning. I'm using a Teflon guide at the moment which works fine but there's still a 1-2mm play. Don't suppose your keen on sharing the STL file by any chance? ;)

    mate, all is up and running? When I finish my hardware upgrades I want to install the Thanos board as well. Looks quite good the new firmware
