Adjusting the lead screw.
The 48 tooth HTD pulley has been installed using a taper lock.
Then some time was spent adjusting the parallelism of the lead screw. That requires quite a few movements of the carriage along the 600mm thread. Each 360 degree turn of the lead screw advances the carriage 6mm, so you can understand that I became a bit impatient with all of the repetitive hand actions to move the carriage from one end to the other.
So this was a solution to that issue. That HTD belt is the one that was too long, so I was happy to find a use for it. The variable speed battery drill shot the carriage end to end in a couple of seconds.
All is now adjusted parallel.
A few more little installation issues, then for the wiring.
