Assembling the sliding blocks

To assemble the four sliding blocks, perform the following actions:

  1. Sort the wooden parts marked FRONT from A through E. Make sure the text is facing the same direction. Use the part C with the hole in it.
  2. Take the sintered bushing and push it through part A.

    Note: This might take some force. Use a redundant piece of wood to push the sintered bushing through the wooden parts.

  3. Now push it though part B, C, D and E.
  4. Repeat these steps for the back, left and right sliding blocks. Try to let the sintered bushing stick out equally on each side of the sliding block.

Attaching the claws

To attach the sliding block claws, perform the following actions:

  1. Put one hex nut on each of the four M3x10 bolts and put it all the way onto the bolt.
  2. Put the bolts with hex nuts through the middle hole of the 6mm wooden part C (marked FRONT, BACK, LEFT, RIGHT) and secure with one hex nut each.

    Note: The last nut should just fit.

  3. Place the claw marked FRONT into the front sliding block (with both engravings in the same direction) and secure the sliding block with 3 M3x30 bolts and 3 hex nuts. Don’t put a bolt on the place where the claw will be closed.

    Note: Do not overtighten the bolts; the claw must be able to rotate.

  4. Repeat step 3 for the back, left and right sliding blocks.
  5. Prepare the small 4mm wooden parts C by inserting an M3x10 bolt and place a hex nut on the very end of this bolt. You will need these parts later in the assembly process.
