    figured out why my other 3 actuators were out of alignment... slight shift at the bearing block and top plate spells unsquareness for the ball screw.
    i was able to align one for the night. to be continued.

    Didn't you take out the inserts of the BK12 ? They keep it all nice and straight, just a thought ;)

    Just some progress. Finalized my version of the anti rotation device.
    used the nut housing which i plan to epoxy the carbon tube with, but increased the surface area by adding a PETG 3d printed 20mm ball screw spacer..

    a tid bit from back then..
    i didnt realize that the BK12 bearing blocks had two bearings inside of different inside diameter. one was bigger than the other. some bearing blocks i had to open them up to switch bearing placement..
