    If you PM me your list I will format it for you so that Fred will understand it. You also have to ask for grease nipples.
    I totally missed the grease nippel. Does anyone know where to get some? :)

    Not really an update but I have a good finding that I would like to share.
    A friend of mine gave me three of those aluminium beams that he found as reinforcements in a box that had inside a big ladder !
    It is like early Christmas, how can I use them at my build ?
    First think that came to my mind is to cut the small square tube, the one that is weld perpendicular to the long one and use it as base for the motors and cut longitudinal the long part ,and use it as a support to L beam of Y axis?
    Any thoughts ?

    Thanks for the tip. Turns out I had some in my shed, turned out nice :D
    Still haven't found any local place to buy suitable lithium grease :(

    Yesterday I spend two hours at customs office to make the papers pay take my balscrews and linear rails.
    Everything arrived in good condition and packed very well, Fred and BST Automation appears to be very professional at what they are doing.
    Here is a pic of the stuff...

    I am going to be out of country for two weeks, so I will have plenty of time to design the bench.
    50x50 cm is the most easy steel tube bars to find but I know is out of discussion for building a bench, any recommendations about what tubes to use?

    Ooh goodies!
    Did it arrive in good shape?
    So that's why you was stuck in customs.. I thought you had been traveling and suspected of smuggling or something :D

    You can build one hell of a bench using 50x50 CM steel ;)
