 +
 
 +
===Other Tools===
 +
 +

 +
* 22mm --- a stubby wrench is well-suited for this, and handier due to the low torque requirements
 +

*M1.5 Allen wrench
+
*'''2mm Allen wrench''' --- used for the set screws on flexible couplers with both jaw screws and set screws, the jaw screws will take a 2.5 mm Allen key (above)
 +
*'''1.5mm Allen wrench''' --- used for the M3 set screws in metric bore pulleys
 +
*1/16" Allen wrench --- (Imperial) set screw in 1/4" and 5mm pulleys. '''Note:''' This is only 5% larger than the 1.5mm and in many cases will fit, and fit more securely, allowing more torque to be applied.
 +
 
 +
'''Note:''' Ball-end hex wrenches are much easier to use when assembling things at odd angles in tight spaces.

Filing tools or Dremel with milling bit: The Shapeokos produced in Inventables batch #1 have coated mounting plates. The paint (red paint and white primer) on these plates must be removed from the holes for the bolts to fit. Batches 2 - 4 have small nubs around all holes. They don't effect performance, but can be removed for the sake of aesthetics.
+
* Taps
 +
** https://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-taps/=160sq9g --- spiral/gun taps are useful in a through hole, pushing chips out the far end
 +
** M3 tap (for Shapeoko 3 if tapping rails to mount drag chains)
 +
** M6 tap (for Shapeoko 3): http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-9-Drill-and-6-mm-x-1-0-NC-Tap-Set-DWA1420/204787310
 +
* Countersink, Filing tools or Dremel with milling bit: Some Shapeokos have mounting plates w/ coatings which may need to be removed from the holes for the bolts to fit. Some manufacturing process may leave small nubs around all holes which should be filed off. A single twist of a countersink will remove the burr, which is much faster than a file.
 +
* Tapered Reamer --- Some upgrades may require enlarging the holes in the plates --- a tapered reamer is a useful tool for doing so. This was more so the case for the ShapeOko 1's plates which had round holes.
 +
* Machinist's (or other high-precision) square --- a good quality drafting triangle is amazingly precise for the price and a useful tool for checking that things are square, perpendicular and plumb.

Tool Descriptions and Notes

  • 4mm Allen wrench --- used for M5 Socket Cap Head Screws (SCHS)
  • 3mm Allen wrench --- used for M5 Button Cap Head Screws (BCHS)
  • 2.5mm Allen wrench --- used on M3 SCHS, 5mm--8mm coupler set screws

  • 1.5mm Allen wrench --- used for the M3 set screws in metric bore pulleys
  • 1/16" Allen wrench --- (Imperial) set screw in 1/4" and 5mm pulleys. Note: This is only 5% larger than the 1.5mm and in many cases will fit, and fit more securely, allowing more torque to be applied.

Note: Ball-end hex wrenches are much easier to use when assembling things at odd angles in tight spaces.

Allen wrenches.JPG
  • 2 13mm open-end wrenches --- for tightening the jam nuts on the threaded rod --- or use an adjustable crescent wrench
  • 8mm open-end wrench --- used for M5 nuts and eccentric spacers

Note: 1/2" and 5/16" wrenches (pictured) respectively are w/in tolerance and may be used instead (or one may use the odd pair of a 13mm and 1/2" wrench if one has a combination Imperial/metric set of wrenches).

  • 5.5mm open-end wrench --- used for M3 hex nuts
  • A tool to tighten the M3 brass standoff spacers --- candidates include: 5mm open-end wrench, adjustable crescent wrench, nylon parallel-jaw pliers.

If this occurs, one option is to use a dab of thread locker to prevent the guilty bolt from coming loose again. It's not necessary to do this to any of the bolts unless they begin to loosen.
