    edit - oooh, useful http://www.waltontools.com/products/remvtap.htm

    double edit - some ideas here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZsjj7pqBXc
    I had a look at similar tapextractors today but they were only for standard taps with 4 straight grooves. My tap is the spiral kind..
    So no go on the extraction ;)
    Only have a stick welder right now and it's not really a good idea with the epoxy already applied :D
    But I think it will be okey in the end anyway!

    New question!!
    All you hiwin users get the sexy green dust guards to put in the rail screw holes. For my noulei rails I got red ones.. they have a really tight fit but no stops or nothing so they easily get pressed down into the holes.
    Is it the same for hiwin?

    My clone rails and my original rails never came with caps but mounting my rails at right angles so not so worried about them becoming fouled up.

    Desertboy since you have use both Hiwi rails and some other similar, have you notice difference in quality? What about tollerance between rails and sliders ?

    The rails feel identical between the originals and clone but the clone rails don't seem as high quality metal but that's really a gut thing only time will tell. Tolerance on the cheap rails seems spot on just as good as the originals.

    The clone rail was £100 for 2* 1.5m and 4 carriages delivered! so I wasn't expecting it to be as good but it does feel real nice based on initial impressions I can see me buying more of the clone rail down the line for a plasma cutter table.

    Took me a while to find the ebay listing bastards have put them up £40 now! Wish I'd bought more of them but will keep an eye on them to see if they reduce the price again at some point.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/15-1500mm-...N/282574638774

    They are out of stock but they are always out of stock lol not surprising at the price but they seem to restock monthly. If you're getting crazy delivery prices send them an email my friend bought a set to US and ebay was quoting him £500 delivery lol but when he contacted them it cost him $30 for P&P. They seem to sell out in a week after each restock so probably worth sending them a mail if your interested or you'll miss it.

    It's free delivery to UK which is nice.

    The price they have the plasma cutters up for
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CUT50-Plas...item5d746be6a1

    I think I will be buying 2 sets of 1.5m rails and the cutter from them but that'll be after Xmas more interesting things to build and do first ;)
