Closed, ResolvedPublic

Its ready for review if we decide to go this route

@kent and i discussed making an insert jig that would force the bloom out and away from the path of the screw. The downside is , if it is off position at all the bloom could be forced into the path of the screw

I think we should go with nylocs for this

This is merged into master. T4830 has future changes on the printed part so will confirm printed part test there.
