Wanhao, Maker Select and Balco upgraded 4mm Aluminium Y Carriage

We have developed our very own upgrade to the popular i3 machines from Wanhao, Maker Select and Balco to rectify a common bed leveling issue.  Over time, the thin standard steel plate will twist and warp due to the constant heating and cooling cycles.

This thicker aluminium plate is not only lighter than the standard plate, it provides the strength needed to ensure the heated plate is adjusted and not the carriage itself when you are leveling the build plate.
