    i quite like the mixed slat idea!...im going to use 100x50x6 angle to support the slats which will be spaced 20mm away from the main frame so i can eventualy turn it into a water table with down draft air extraction...im planning to use magnets to hold the torch to the z axis so if it hits anything it will break away.............

    reduction box ..

    iv ordered 15mm silver steel to build the shafts,15mm pillow block bearings (look very cheap) and the t5 pulleys are coming pre bored and grub screwed, by doing this hopefully the only bit of engineering will be to bore the 24t rack gear...

    Looks really good. What is your plan for tensioning your pinion gear into your gear rack?
