SnakeOilXY 180 Bed
This bed is designed for the SnakeOilXY printer and features m3 ground and thermistor mountings points, as well as 5 - 150C Neodynium magnets with 11 lbs of holding force. The bed is made from 6.35mm 5083 Aluminum Cast Tooling Plate.
Now, a word of warning, if you are using an inductive sensor, you WILL have issues leveling your bed if you choose the magbed option. Our magnets are very strong, and they mess with inductive sensors, some capacitive sensors, and even BLTouch. If you choose to use BLTouch, you will have to dodge magnets while probing your bed. We do not provide the coordinates for this, so it will be up to you to figure out.
Our magbeds are a top magnet design bed, meaning that the magnets are slightly below the surface of the magbed. This gives a very superior holding power, however, it does require a very good quality build plate, such as Buildtak, or Subtle.Design. The manufacturers of those flex plates use a 0.5mm thick sheet. Thinner sheets may dimple slightly under the magnet. A lot of China build plates are not up to the challenge.
We also check each bed on a granite surface plate to make sure it is within specs for use on your printer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If at any point you decide to remove the magnets, first of all, when reinstalling the screws, turn the screw backwards until you feel the threads in the screw jump the threads in the bed. Once you feel that little bump, turn the screw in until it gets to the "screw stops turning point" with zero strength behind it. Once the screw has stopped turning, tighten it 1/32nd of a turn and NO MORE. Overtightening WILL shatter the magnets.
