I have just assembled the Duet kit ready to install on my Workbee. I would suggest you adjust the size of the M4 & M3 bolt holes on the printed boards. The bolts do not slide through the holes at all, rather they need to be screwed in to allow they to cut a thread or the holes have to be reamed out to a slightly larger size.

Hi Derek,

Thank you for the feedback, we will look into getting this adjusted.

Ryan Lock -

I agree with Derek. 6 months on and it’s still a problem

Peter Harris -

Sorry this has been an oversite. I have created a flag to get this sorted right away.

Ryan Lock -

I have now made this change so all kits being shipped from last week onward should have a lot more allowance on the 3D Printed Parts, Thanks for your comments and please do get in touch if anything else needs to be altered!

Best Regards
