MK2 Lead Screw Dust Shield

USD$46.99

Prevent dust and debris from getting into your Y-axis lead screws with these dust shields designed for the LongMill MK2.

These are made from formed sheet metal and are easily installed between the front and back feet using M5 hardware. The ACME lead screws and Delrin Anti-backlash nuts used on the MK2 are designed to work in dusty conditions so these dust covers are not required for general use. These shields aren’t compatible with the 12×30 MK2.

Description

Material: Stainless Steel

Each order comes with one pair of dust shields, installed on the left and right Y-axis rails.

We recommend this product to customers if they are:

  • Cutting abrasive materials such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, and ceramics
  • Not using a dust collection system
  • Have a messy workplace and want to prevent tools, debris, materials, wires, and other items from getting caught in the wheels of the Y-axis.

Each dust shield is easily installed and removed with a set of M5 screws on the front of the machine.

Please note that the lead screws and Delrin nut system used on all LongMills are designed for use in dusty environments, and for most users, the dust shield only serves a limited benefit.
