[title] Install filament spool holder
[* red] Locate the ''left and right filament spool brackets'', the two ''spool cones'', the ''Spool Hardware'' bag and the ''spool axelaxle'' (grey PVC tubing).
[* icon_note] The ''spool axelaxle'' is taped shut at both ends, inside you will find two pieces of wire. These will be used in an upcoming step to install the wiring harness.

[* red] Loosely attach the ''left and right filament spool brackets'' to the ''T-nut''s on the top unit. These are in the cross members coming from the '''Z''' tower as shown in the second photo.
[* red] Install the ''spool cones'' on the ''spool axelaxle'' as shown in the third photo. You may have to enlarge the bore in them to get a tight friction fit on the ''axelaxle''.
[* red] Insert the ''axelaxle'' into the ''spool brackets'' and slide the ''brackets'' on the cross members so the ''axelaxle'' is supported as shown in the third photo. Then tighten the four screws to secure the ''brackets''.
[* icon_note] Remove the axelaxle and set aside so it is not in your way in upcoming steps.
