    is there a video or other thread showing how to properly setup the antibacklash nut?
    I'm not sure how tight to set the set screw. Do you want it to right where it is touching or add some tension to it. Thanks in advance

    Did you find the answer ?

    edit: Found this finally :
    To use the the Anti-Backlash Nut Block - Turn the set screw just enough to take out any play in the Nut Block. Then screw the lock nut on the top of the set screw to lock the set screw in place.

    Thanks for going to the trouble of finding the information and replying to Justin's question, and it was a good question and answer. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    However, I was wondering if you happened to notice the date it was posted? :rolleyes:
    I sure hope he found the answer some time ago. (Actually, checked his history and he has made himself a couple of machines since then.) :D
    Many Thanks though. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
