    no bracket. I used t slot nuts and screwed the drag chain directly to the aluminum extrusion frame and then I used zip ties to attach the other end to one of the spring bolts that holds the bed. And made sure that ther was enough slack that the electrical connector on the heatbed never flexed as the y axis went its full travel in each direction.

    So the extruder that comes with the black widow sucks just because it requires taking a tool to 3 allen screws to change filament and adjust tension. Also my bltouch mount for this printer is a bad design..



    there is not enough room to move the bracket up enough to run the correct hardware with springs for fine adjustments and it is near impossible to make fine adjustments with the one large bolt holding the bracket to the gantry. This makes me use my other printers more. And so I can not leave this alone. There is no room to go up here and the extruder that came with the black widow is so heavy anyways that I just think this whole machine would benefit from a lighter extruder. I already have a titan on Printalicious and am very happy with it so here I am going to go one step further and lighter and I have ordered a titan aero. I even found a really awesome mount for it: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2243824

    How did it come out? I assume power is back by now unless maybe you are on Sanibel or somesuch.
