    Hello,

    Decided to take the plunge and started my Rockcliff build.

    Changed a couple of things in the design slightly to try and add some
    strenght and stability to the machine.

    Have loaded a few photos in the Photos section. (Where else!!)

    I haven't bought them yet, but have decided to use 20mm rails and
    Oilite bearings. Along with Trapezoidal leadscrews and Delrin nuts
    (hope to make these myslef).
    Probably get the steppers and drivers from Motion Control Products.

    Will update as it goes!


    Nick.
