How do I tighten the belts on the stepper motors?
Each belt is a split belt. The split end of the belt for the y-axis is mounted underneath the x-axis bar (right side of machine). There is a screw on each side of the belt under the x-axis for the y-axis. Tighten each screw to the desired tension. It will be the same for the belt on the left side of the machine. For the x-axis, there is a belt roller at the opposite end from the stepper motor (left side of machine). Directly behind that roller are four screws that you will tighten to the desired tension of the belt.
