We were recently asked if one of our 300mm Linear Actuator Kits could be retrofitted to the Z-axis of a Shapeoko 2.

This is one solution we came up with (not the only one):

The problem 

The hole spacing on the Z-Assembly Carriage (PS20021) and the Shpeoko's bolt height above the plate.


The Linear Actuator was designed to allow for a length of 2060 V-Slot to fit inside and act as a mounting base. Using the Linear Actuator with the 2060 base, the 3 long slots and some 6.5mm spacers as standoffs the assembly looks like this:

Parts Required:

1 x 300mm Linear Actuator Kit

1 x 280mm 2060 V-Slot

2 x 8mm Low Profile Screws

6 x 15mm Low Profile Screws

6 x Tee Nuts

6 x 6.5mm Spacers

We would love to get feedback and ideas on other mounting methods.

Students have to learn how to challenge themselves. Pushing yourself to the best of your ability is the best reward a student can give themselves. A student needs to set their mind on attaining the ultimate prize a good education with honors that makes them stand out. A student should be able to maintain the gusto throughout their student’s life. A student needs to have the bigger picture of what they tend to attain within a specified period. It is advisable that each student develops a long-term goal. The short-term goals should be in line with the long-term plan. Short-term goals help a student understand when they have missed on attaining a particular objective. If one fails in the short term, they will fail in the long run.

The best essay services reviews are the host of a paper writing service provider that assists students with academic papers. A wise student comes up with a plan of how to balance every aspect of their life. Like any human being, their purpose is not only academic. A student needs to develop the social, economic, and religious aspects of their life as well. A student needs to get inspired or rather they will get expired. Goals help a student live with a purpose.
