Shapeoko 2 X Axis Drag Chain?

Post by dave_the_nerd » Mon Nov 02, 2020 3:16 am

Does anybody still rocking a Shapeoko 2 have an X axis drag chain and can share pictures of how they made it work? I'm just looking for references since I'm about to (finally) install one on mine. (Got the drag chains a couple years ago and they've been sitting in a box ever since. I installed the Y axis chain today and am happy with it, but am not sure how I'm going to suspect the X in the air or... what.)

I've seen photos of the newer X-Carves and how the drag chain is lying on top of the extrusion itself, but I'm not sure there's enough room for that in the old '2s?
Shapeoko 2 # 6651: 500x1000mm, Acme screw and belt drive Z-axis, DW660 w/ IC mount, Arduino/grblShield w/ gCode 0.9g and 3D-printed electronics enclosure.
