    Did I do something wrong? The 5″- 7/16 x 5″ bolt holding the gantry together, seems about 1/2″ short…

    Lets see a picture.

    It is kinda short, depending on what version you are using but a little loktite can fix that.

    Actually, I’ve already fixed it. I cut a piece of allthread, put a nylock on one end and double nutted the other. The short bolt was easy to screw out and screw the all thread in. It now sits proud at the top by 3/4 in. Enough for 3 nuts. If it interferes I’ll take it back out and cut a bit off or get another bolt, 5 1/2″ would be right on.
