Stops in laser kit

I have 2 laser cut and machine bent stops from the laser cut kit.

I'm looking at plans M1 18 021 to 023 S (leads to M1 18 020 W, ultimately to M1 18 000 A) and trying to determine how many of these stops I have to make.

I see that higher drawing 10 30 000 A shows 1 of M1 18 000 (on the motor side of the y-car) and 10 20 000 A shows 2 of M1 18 000 (one on each side).

I guess the laser kit onesl go on the gantry and I need to make one more for the Y-car. Is this correct?

Red,

The machine bent stops are 2 for the gantry and one for the car
In our case we done 2 for the gantry and 2 for the car but 2 on the car are not really required.

Cheers
Tony.

Thanks for confirming this Tony.
Good, another job I can scratch off. Feels great to knock these small ones over a couple in a day. Now I've just about 100 holes to drill. Is that one job or 100?
Doesn't matter, I suppose. Each is just a mouthful of the elephant I've bitten off. Eventually I'll get to eating the tail...

Many thanks to Rick Nixon who pointed out there should be 3 sets of stops in the laser kit he supplied (and the offer to supply the "missing" one).
I scratched at the bottom of the box of remaining laser parts and metal offcuts and came up with the 3rd stop.

Does anyone else take a grinder to these parts and sand off the sharp edges? I just hate handling parts with catches.

We grind sharp/rough edges off all parts, including laser cut. Apart from the "feel", it allows paint to stick properly. (paint doesn't "build" on a sharp edge)
