1. Insert Flanged Bearing
Insert the flanged bearing into the Z-Plate as shown. Be sure to insert the bearing from the side of the plate that has a recession, the bearing will sit inside the hole so that the flange is flush with the Z-Plate.
Insert two small screws to hold the bearing captive. Finger tighten both and check to make sure the flange is flush with the Z-Plate. Then tighten them down with moderate force.
2. Attach the Z-Plate to the Z-Axis Makerslide
Before you attach the Z-Axis Makerslide to the Z-Plate be sure that you have the correct orientation:
Use the two longer button head cap screws to attach the Z-Plate to the Z-Axis Makerslide. The screws go through the Z-Plate and into the Makerslide.
When you’re done your Z-Axis should look like this:
3. Attach the Z-Axis to the X Carriage

Push two screws through the top Z-Axis mounting holes on the X Carriage.
Thread two insertion nuts onto these screws. You’ll only need a couple of threads to grab.
The backside of the Z-Axis Makerslide has two slots that are designed to accept insertion nuts. Slide these slots over the insertion nuts.
Slide the Z-Axis down along the X Carriage to about here and tighten:
Rock the machine onto its front like this:
Insert two more insertion nuts from the bottom of the Z-Axis and finger tighten two screws into them to secure the Z-Axis Makerslide:
The Z-Axis should be captured by four insertion nuts and screws at this point, but you should still be able to slide it up and down the X Carriage. Slide it so that the insertion nuts are just inside of the Makerslide like this:
Tighten all four screws that capture the Z-Axis. Alternate between screws in an x-pattern to maintain alignment.
Rock the machine back on to its feet again to continue:
