6mm thick Y carriage plate from Technologika.net
Includes a lot of pre-drilled holes for different mounting options
Comparison with the original
Unfortunately the holes are wrong size - they should be 4mm not 3mm, so I had to drill them out. This material when drilled, has a lot of burr which is a bit annoying.
The original M4 screws are too short - 10mm needed. Re-used the original bearing blocks but fitted Igus Drylin, but really I should have just used cable ties to mount them directly on the plate without the bearing blocks. A problem is the bed levelling screws a bit too short now. They should be 30mm long (from stock 25mm) really otherwise there isn't enough room for comfortable adjustment. Adjustable Z end stop mod required. Just tested it all corners have pretty much the same amount of spring tension after levelling, so it seems to be doing its job.
