    If I put that on a thread it would rip it to pieces. They are going to cost him over 4 quid each in return postage if he makes me send them back.

    I have bought M30x2 l/h taps and die and I am ordering EN1A freecutting leaded steel from GLR. A s/h M20 spiral flute reamer is on it's way and I am doing circuit boards to hook an STM32F407 cpu to the steppers

    Looking Good!
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    Progress tortuously slow, new spindle nose in leaded steel, thread a bit raggety, will have to do.

    Laying out circuit boards for the controller, just reached the DRC stage -yawn-
