    Are the Black Angle Corner Connector and the Cast Corner Bracket functionally equivalent?

    Thank you.

    The Cast Corner Brackets have tabs and the Black Angle Corner Connector don't have tabs. I think the tabs should be filed off where the tabs don't go into slots. One example is mounting the 20X80 V-Slot rail to the gantry plates when building the Lead Machine.

    And in one area the Black connectors have an extra somewhat unknown feature: You can mount wheels to them :) to make bespoke carriages for custom ideas

    That additional feature makes a big difference.

    Thank you, Peter!

    The holes are sized to use Eccentric spacers on all sides to adjust for perfect running :)
