Z axis blocked

Hello Yeti's,

I've got a problem with my Smartbench today that i've quicly fixed but it could very annoying when you're milling a long part.

So, the 3 M4 screws witch fix the Z bearing under the Z pulley were all unscrewed.

So the pulley became to touch the screws and after a while the Z screw was totally blocked.

I've screwed them with loctite threadlocker 2701.

Happy new year !
