Gantry Front Plate, Step 2: Lower V-Wheels

Repeating the back plate operation, mount two lower V-wheels to the gantry front plate. Use M5-30 bolts and eccentric spacers. After tightening, ensure the wheels turn freely and turn the marked edge of the eccentric spacers down. Also, ensure that you can turn the eccentric spacers (don’t overtighten).
