Here's yet another implementation of a Z-Axis way cover for the PM25-MV milling machine. I used a $10 pull down shade from Lowes, a few 3d printed parts, a nut plate and some .032" neoprene rubber. Works great and gives me back about an inch of precious Y-Axis motion.

See the YouTube video:


I posted STL files (the 3d printed parts) and a DXF (the nut plate) on Thingiverse.com for anyone who wants to make one. I can also provide Solidworks 2016 files if you like.

Enjoy!
