This frame vertex is made with vinyl tubing and two fender washers.

It requires no drilling or cutting beyond sectioning the tubing with scissors.

Materials: (1) 2" section of 3/8" OD x 1/4" ID vinyl tubing (2) fender washers (2) nuts

Assembly: Thread the tubing section onto the end of the threaded rod until it is tight. Form two triangles. Use the washers to clamp the ends of the cross bars to the inside of the vertex.

Z-motor mount:

This is a zero requirement z-motor mount.

The motor is lightly clamped between the fender washers. The inside nut keeps the clamping washer vertical.

The loop of tape secures the motor vertically.
