Stiffening the X-Axis on my Shapeoko

Stiffening the X-Axis on my Shapeoko

At the suggestion of users on the Shapeoko forums, I finally decided to dismantle my Shapeoko and bolt the two X-axis MakerSlides together in order to eliminate the flex in the X-axis. Of course, I originally thought I could do this without removing the X-axis. WRONG! I damaged the wiring for my X-axis homing switch and could not make a perpendicular hole through the two MakerSlides. I have a drill press, so use the drill press.
