    1. To adjust the rods, just get your hands in there and give it a twist
    2. Im sure your wife knows how to adjust your "z height" without problems.
    3. If you find there's to much friction, just add some lube and try again
    4. If you find your nozzle is banging into the bed, ur doing it wrong.
    5. some "oozing" is normal before/after you "print"
    6. when upgrading, any average smooth rod will suffice, if it's too long, just cut it down some. O.O
    7. Be careful when re-installing your "x" carriage. You might lose your marbles.
    8. Pro-Tip: When tweaking, remember to twist both sides equally
    9. To make your bed last longer, remember to put down a protective coating
    10. If your X rests too close to the bed, you may throw your nuts
    11. Be sure to insert the "motor" shaft all the way inside the coupler for maximum grip.
    12. Don't leave the "hot end" turned on for extended periods of time. If you do, consult a doctor.
    13. if you do "some burning may occur"
    14. Bob it only burns when I extrude :I
    15. Do clean out your hot end occasionally. It might become clogged over time.
    16. If you find your nozzle becomes too clogged, you may have to remove it. Often a hot wire or needle will clear the problem
    17. Protip. Flash your firmware to your computer, not to the public.
    18. If you find your nozzle is oozing your material may be too wet

    If you realize things on the bed have become far too out of control, there is always the emergency stop command. Or you can ride it out to see what happens, just take lots of pictures to share with friends.

    On the bright side, it doesn't have to fly far...

    Today, Donhuevo asked me what is the length of my coupler?...
    Without thinking it through I replied 22mm...

    Sadly, forgetting that once it's on the internet, its there forever....

    Poor Axis. You just need to find a suitably snug bushing with a tight thread.

    Sadly I got excited and overtighend during the screwing. Turned into a horrible strip show. Now the bits just kind of flop around in there. I really shouldn't play with my coupler without proper supervision.
