  1. The above was made from 20mm thick alu, 20mm Support Rails, SBR20 Bearings.

    The main front part is 150x420mm.

    There have been a few small design changes since the above.

    The main two things is I quickly moved away from the TR16x4 Leadscrews, and upgraded to 1605 Ballscrew.

    And added extra support for the stepper motor.

    I am also no longer using a 1020w wood router for my spindle, but have now upgraded to a 2.2kw water cooled spindle.

    What sort of problems did you get with Trapezoidal screws, as I was going to use them on all axis 16mm.
    As much as I would like ballscrew, it just want work with my budget just now.
    Im looking at x=1200mm, y=900mm, z=300mm ( I may drop each axis down by 100mm )
    nema23 motors x 4, tb6560 drivers x 4 (stand alone drivers) and PSU ( upgrade to G450 soon )
    Cad software I have is Autocad, google sketchup and draftsight.
    From all the reading I have done on Z-axis, I think yours will work best for me.

  3. Maybe I should of reworded it a little better.
    I did not move away from the Trapezoidal screws due to a problem as such.
    Just that a 1605 ballscrew with custom machined ends & ballnut, inc postage from Chai was cheaper then I was expecting.

    One thing I would say is stay clear of the tb6560, I think I was one of the 1st on this forum to play about with them drivers, and it was nothing but hassle.
    I do know some people that I using the newer tb6560 boards without a problem.
    But nothing beats having good drivers.
    I am / was using LeadShine 752 Drivers, but I am in a middle of a upgrading with NDA steppers & drivers.

    Just waiting for some more funds, and soon my current cnc router will no longer be classed as a desktop unit, going to need a better shed.
