Z-height adjuster screw pitch?

Postby EldRick » Thu Jan 18, 2018 12:54 am

What is the pitch of the bed-height adjuster thumb-screw, i.e. how much difference does one full turn of the screw make in the bed height?

It is an M3 x 0.5 screw, so one turn is .02" or .5mm.

Thanks. No wonder it is so delicate tweaking the bed height.
