NOTE (24 June 2014)
The printed endstop holders shown in these pictures have been replaced with a slimmer version in all kits shipped on or after 23 June 2014. The pictures below still show the older version as there is no change to the assembly procedure.
601 Endstops - Parts needed
Printed endstop holders x 3
Microswitches x 3
M3 x 8 socket capscrews x 3
M3 full nuts x 3
M2.5 x 12 socket capscrews x 6
602 Endstop Assembly
Fit an M3 capscrew through the printed holder and add a nut.
Fit a microswitch with 2 x M2.5 capscrews, with the blade hinged as shown in the picture. The capscrews will cut their own thread in the plastic. Tighten just enough to hold the switch firmly - be careful not to over-tighten as this could strip the plastic thread.
Repeat for the other 2 endstops and set aside for later.
