Revision to Kossel Pro

Randy Merrill

'''PLEASE NOTE: DOCUMENTATION LINKED TO ON THIS PAGE IS WORK IN PROGRESS'''
 
We strive to make the Kossel Pro and the OpenBeam Kossel Reprap to be as straightforward and easy to build as possible. We provide allAll our cables pre-crimped with polarity keyed locking connectors, and we provideuse laser cut spacers to assist with loading the nuts into the proper spotposition.

It is a good idea to get through the gluing processprocess started, then pause / work on another sub assembly,assembly until all the gluing is completeglue has cured. For best results, allow 24 hours for the Loctite 410 adhesive included in the kit to dry / de-gas, before proceeding.
