Well first I need to be able to print reliably. So no mods til I can achieve that feat!

The homing was fixed shortening that screw a little bit.

I also had to move the fan wires from the front of the print head to wrap around the right side and up...then used a thin solid core wire to wrap it into place. This helps keep those fan power wires clear of the print head temp/sensor ones.

I removed the Y motor, removed the pulley they put it back on...as tight as I could without stripping the set screw. Those individual stand offs are a pain to put back in! But I have the belt in there tight again....I used a marker to draw a line on the shaft and hub to see if that's actually moving and causing the leaning prints.

Now to do the firmware test Neo asked for :)

I apologize for being slow to do the tests you asked for...I've been doing some aluminum CNC work for my R2 building friends each evening

Hope to have an update/video for you to analyze soon.
