Title: Laser Engraver Spacers

Just printed these for my A5. A little tight so you end up threading them on the M5s, but they seem like they will work better than the nylon spacers

Mine has chunky brass inserts on either side of the wheels, I guess yours is an early version ?
A nut would clash with the bearing dust cover but these are small enough diameter, they work well.

That's what I have on my A3 as well. My A5 has nylon spacers that are warped. I have a guy at work with a lathe that is supposedly making me some brass spacers, but I have only seen one so far (15 more to go). I want my second machine up and running.  I got new acrylic x axis cut and find that I still get a wobble. I am going to see if I can use Nottingham's tensioner for the A5 frame. These spacers came out nice though. Will have to report back once I see them in action.

As a side note, I have contacted Eleksmaker, banggood and a parts distributor to find those brass spacers to see if I could buy them. Nobody knows a thing about them.
