Mendel Mayhem: Y-axis

I know this one will come to grinding halt soon as I will have to go and make the thick and thin plate parts, but for now, here goes.

Motor Bracket
As with the Z-axis, fit the pulley to the motor first if you're using the set screw one's.

Idler Bracket
The mudguard washers again needed grinding to fit...

Y bearing 360
Two of these required, mirror images of each other.

Y bearing 180
Two mirrored sub-assemblies required again.

Another 1.5 hours later and next up is the Y-axis chassis, but as mentioned at the beginning of this post, that requires the 'thick sheets'. So I'm stopping here for now and will be cutting thick plates before the next tranche of assembly.

Thanks for watching and good night!
