This just came through on the Mach3 Yahoo group and I thought it might be of interest to anyone with a gantry type mill.

Axis Bellows (http://www.franksworkshop.com/CNC/Bellows/Bellows.htm)

Basically a bit of origami which could save your precious ballscrews and slides from the effects of coolant/swarf etc.

Have a look at his build log to see the bellows in action.

I found it fascinating anyway.

Take care all.
