A 5/16” hole was piloted then drilled in the pie tin to give a mounting hole for the free-spinner in-line skate wheel which keep the chain on the sprockets. It now sits low since it was originally held up by a magnet base. A longer threaded bolt will be necessary. The assembly will likely need a rubber band around the bolt attached to a bolt in the center of the printer to remain stable and effective.
