Thumb screw for M2 Bed Leveling

Postby psd » Wed Oct 18, 2017 3:17 pm

I made a hand knob for the Makergear M2 for bed leveling,
this makes the leveling process so much easier than using the allen key and reaching under to find the set screw.
It also allows fine tuning on the fly.

what a difference on the fly bed leveling makes!

with these thumb screws you can make slight adjustments to any corner as its printing, really good for fine tuning during skirt print!
