    Can someone here enlighten me how the anti-backlash nut is assembled? I understand how the nut is attached to the axis and that the set screw is used to put pressure on the threaded rod to prevent slop when the direction of the lead screw is changed. However, what is the stop nut used for that is included with the anti-backlash nut?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    The lock nut is used to help prevent the set screw from loosening.
