Description

Just in case we see a lot of binding during alphas, I've slotted a top rod mount to help alleviate the binding

@DaniAO I have not really seen any binding due to excessive drag on the tool head. I did notice while building the tool heads some of the motor mounts felt a little tight but I have not had a working printer that could not go through its whole range of motion with the actuators. Thats not to say we wont ever get any with too much drag but as far as the alphas go I have not had a problem.

@west do we feel that we need this change or are we good with the current design?

Personally, I don't think this will be necessary, I think we're achieved enough alleviation from binding via the slots in the lower
