    hi guys

    I’ve hit a bit of a conundrum with my workbee build. I’ve followed the build video and backed off the y axis to the joining plates so they are touching before I tighten the lead nut blocks. But when I tighten he blocks up it evokes impossible to move the couplers at all. I have to back the lead nut blocks off about half a turn to get any movement. Is this right?

    Hi all

    Just to let you all know that this problem is now resolved, after reading another thread about tight nut blocks, I followed the help there and ran an old t8 lead screw through the blocks a couple of times and this has now resolved the issue
