Mendel90 X Motor Assembly

With the Christmas break affecting dispatch and delivery of parts, the replacement 15way IDC D types, which I broke due to an unfortunate combination of inebriation and stupidity, arrived yesterday.

I've now been able to complete the X axis motor assembly of my Mendel90 kit.

I like the way all the cables are bundled in a single ribbon cable. My current printer has many single cables that although functional, look untidy.
It was was easy to build and it looks good with the neat cable routing:

Having already completed the Z axis motor assembly, the next step is the Z-axis.
