Itchy: X axis motor mount

Today I milled the motor mount for the X axis (as opposed to the motor mount which moves the X axis. I hate that nomenclature).

Ahem.

Today I milled the mount for the motor that powers drive along the X axis. It was a stepped piece to allow it to butt up against the aluminium extrusion of the axis. It has mountings to attach the motor and the two cable tracks, and a dip for the registering surface of the motor to sit in.

Because I am a numpty, it also has a dip on the opposite face of the plate, where the motor doesn’t sit. This came about in part because I was being taught how to clamp it so my mind was elsewhere, and in part because I was not thinking enough. I don’t k I would have got it right even given the chance.Today I milled the motor mount for the X axis (as opposed to the motor mount which moves the X axis. I hate that nomenclature).
