Easy mode!!!

Absolutely love this tool! Printed my own, highly recommend buying one or making your own this makes tensioning belts evenly so much simpler than trying to use an app and plucking belts!!!!


has everything you need, just print your own parts

Great kit

This is a great kit. It was fairly easy to put together.

The trick is to have the right amount of squish and elephant foot compensation on the first layer for printing the parts. With too much squish, the gears don't mesh well.

Using this I determined that I had over-tensioned the belts in my Voron 2.4. It was fairly easy to adjust the belts to the correct tension.
