White Ant 3d Printer Build- Parts H and O

These parts finish the structural and mechanical components of the printer's

The original WhiteAnt called for two 12" Simpson Strong-Ties to carry the
XZ-axis assembly. Since I elongated the X-axis to 17", I wasn't able to use the
Strong-Ties and instead I cut and drilled 2 steel strips ( 1-1/4" wide and 1/8"
thick) and mounted them to the length of Part H.
Overall, everything seems to move well and a cursory check affirms that the bed
and X-axis are parallel and the Z-axis is perpendicular.
