    This is for those with tall aftermarket linear rails. The higher it goes, the more it's unsupported by the gantry extrusion. It' can flex. this helps eliminate that. build and print at your own risk. IT REQUIRES DRILLING AND TAPPING THE BACK PLATE OF THE LINEAR RAIL!!!!

          One person has experienced the 30mm hex head bolt slip inside the slot. though this is probably an isolated incident and was only on one end clip, I designed a plug to be glued into place to completely lock the hex head from all side. If you do experience slipping, you can also just flow some super glue into the slot. It will take up all the space. I will test and include 3 of them with all orders once verified.

          IT'S FOR MOUNTING THE DUST SHOE ABOVE TO THE GANTRY OF THE X-CARVE AND CAN BE USED WITH EITHER THE 20mm EXTRUSION OR THE 1 INCH EXTRUSION. THIS IS FOR WIDER Z CARRIAGES. 2 VERSIONS, ONE WITH A 5.14" GAP BETWEEN THE BRACKETS, THE OTHER 3.6" BETWEEN, BUT STRONGER.

          THUMB

          These are my design based off of others. I completely remodeled them and redesigned them stronger. a 20mm socket head M5 will clamp them to the rail. an M3 will secure the cover.

          MY GANTRY CLAMP DESIGN

          Use the included zip ties to clamp the interlocked belt teeth together. 2 per belt end. The belt end clip should be close enough to the end plate that you can home the machine without hitting the clip. You may want to put the tensioner side on the back of the machine.
