    Thanks for that brilliant addition to Jazz's vertical concept i2i !!!

    With me designing from scratch, I've been faffing about trying different ways to shield the rails and ballscrews from falling chips with a lateral travelling gantry, and think the vertical-travelling counter-balanced gantry solves all these issues.

    I can't think of any problems if I counter-balance using free-running pulleys... one above each X-Axis rail end... I was going to use a 3Nm stepper on the horizontal and think this will still work on the vertical.

    Am I over simplifying the idea?
