If I'm getting great prints I will not remove my vat and home with it on. I do not tighten my vat that much. Iv'e never had a problem. BUT never home with the platform on.

This is a dumb question perhaps....but should we all upgrade the tilt motor just in case? Better yet, how can I tell I have the old tilt motor?
My printer is working fine though. Probably shouldn't mess with it. LOL

If you look into the printer from the top window, towards the left tilt side, you can see the motor. If the motor screw has a plastic tip then it’s the old motor. The new motor is all metal.
