Place an M2 split lock washer on each M2x10 socket head screw.
There are 2 tapped holes on the top right side of the Z axis assembly. Slide the 2 M2x10mm socket head screws through the holes in the switch. With the actuator facing the front of the machine, use a 1.5mm hex key to secure the switch to the Z axis. Be sure not to over-tighten the screws as it may damage the switch.

The actuator for the X axis homing switch will be located on the back side of the X axis Makerslide.
Place the post-assembly M5 Tee Nut in the bottom channel on the backside of the X axis extrusion.
Place the aluminum spacer on the M5x15 socket head screw and tighten it into the post-assembly Tee Nut using a 3mm hex key.
We will set the correct location of this stop when we calibrate the machine.

The Y Axis Homing Switch Actuator is installed on the left Y-Axis, approximately 2" from the front of the machine. We will set the correct location of this stop when we calibrate the machine in a later step.
Press the tee nut into the outside channel of the left side extrusion (same side where we installed the homing switch on the Y plate). Place the aluminum spacer on the M5x16 socket head screw and secure it to the tee nut using a 3mm hex key.
