We will start with installing the Z tower in the base assembly. You will start by aligning the T-Slot Nuts in the motor mount assembly so that are all in a vertical orientation as shown. '

Next you will feed the 12awg wire down through the melamine plate.

Insert the extrusion into the base top plate, and then through each set of the TSLOT hardware. You will need to have the TSLOT nuts in a vertical orientation to be accepted by the extrusion. You also may need to loosen the TSLOT nuts if you have them too tight.

You should not force the extrusion into the assembly. Be careful while working the extrusion down into the plate and through the TSLOT hardware. Too much side-to-side motion can fracture the base plate.

Upon seating the extrusion, you should route the wires around the idler plate as shown and tighten the (4)1/4-20 button head screws.
