[title] (2x) Install M3 Hardware into Linear Rail
[* black] Use a bit of masking tape to keep your carriage from sliding off your linear rail.
[* black] Select 4 evenly spaced holes in your linear rail.
[* black] Install (4) M3 x 6mm Button Head Bolts in the holes selected for Misumi Rails. For LDO rails use (4) M3 x 8mm Button Head Bolts. Thread an M3 nut onto the end of the bolt. DO NOT TIGHTEN THEM FULLY. The M3 nut only needs to be threaded onto the tip of the bolt, you want a gap between the nut and the back of the rail.
[* icon_caution] It is highly recommended to use a bit of masking tape to keep the carriage from sliding off of the linear rail.
+[* icon_caution] Kits shipping after 5/12/20 include lock washers to go on these bolts, not yet pictured. Place on the bolt before inserting in the rail.
