I’m at the point where I’ve gotten most of the main, small pieces cut, and some of them drilled. A screw’s major diameteris 0. Still, Planz like the idea of reorienting the Y axis slides so that they put weight evenly on both pairs bearings.

Just bought a new Torus Pro, on order from Novakon, thank you John! Use this control to limit the display of threads to those newer than the specified time frame.

Things I’ve given up wrestling with: That’s now making me think of mounting the Y axis pipes directly to the desk yet allowing for shim adjustments somehow.

In looking at the skate bearing assemblies, I couldn’t understand why some have offset holes at. However, CNC router plans can still pllans a valuable resource. All in all, it’s been a great exercise in precision woodwork.

Also recently made jigs for pilot points on the gantry, and a little jig for the holes that go through the aluminum angle to hold the bolts that hold the skate bearings. I may yet get that result by drilling initial holes through from the outside and keeping a piece of material on the inside to act as jig 2, and then use jig 2 to drill from the inside out.

You may prefer to design and build your own machine. I found that the spec saying to use OD 0. When assembling it, I had to eyeball the placement such that the center of the hole aligned with the centerline across the slide V points.
