Awww, thanks guys. Well yer making me feel bad cause I did more and didn't tell anyone.
I don't know about any of you, but after a while my bed goes off the v-slot track because that acrylic piece that is pulled by the y-axis starts to bend. That means the x-axis is not level, or the y-axis, because it's not sliding correctly. And I'm always trying to level the bed again or retighten parts to resolve it.
Well I got tired of it and decided there had to be a way to fix the acrylic piece. I was going to replace it. But I didn't know where to go or how to make sure I drilled the holes at exactly the right places. Then I decided rather than replace it, I could strengthen it.
I have a bunch of misumi 1515 t-slots all 240mm. I took two and screwed them in horizontally where the L-channel was for most of you (which I replaced with a c-channel). I then screwed the c-channel on top. This keeps the acrylic of being able to bend.
I'm sure there are easier or better ways to do this. But I was just using what I had around the house to resolve the issue. I hope it helps someone.
