Z-axis belt drive

Was curious how taut people were managing to get the belt.

Using ModTuner from the Microsoft Store, I get B (3) for the shorter length, E flat (3) for the longer... I believe I had it higher pitched, but it's not as tight as it was.

okay, tried again (using a small pry bar).

w/ the carriage lowered all the way, I'm now getting D 4 (left) and B flat 3 (right)
