C-Beam outer-wheel plate for Z-Gantry

I added an extra 1/4" aluminum plate on top of the stock C-Beam Z gantry plate for and extra set of 4 wheels. This adds a surprising amount of rigidity which helps prevent X/Y deflection. Unfortunately no plate CAD file to share, I just printed out a template and manually drilled.

      Hey that was my idea! Just kidding looks great.

      @Jimmybuckets Thx! You know, I seem to remember someone mentioning it on the forums but I could never seem to remember where or who it was that mentioned the idea, lol. Having the surface area of those extra wheels help a lot keeping the 11lb spindle I'm using a lot more rigid.

      I have got to create a lower spindle mount for my Kress spindle.

      I can incorporate this idea into the new design - thanks. I presume that you have had to put eccentric spacers on both sides and an extra 6mm spacer.
