    Hi Jonathan you PM box is full.

    I'm about to buy the ballscrews from Chai. Just to be sure, I need to get the ballnuts from him right? They are not part of the mount. Also, if he sends me the twin-start thread like he did to Jazz recently, will it work okay for the nut-mounts?

    Yes you do need to get the ballnuts. I recently got some of the twin start from him and I think they will be more rigid than the single start. I asked for twin-start and the price was the same...rotating ballnut mounts will work just fine with both.

    I cut a few bits of 16mm aluminium to size today for the Z axis.

    Is the watering can your coolant system?

    Yes it is. I have never needed it before to cut wood (obviously) but I found my scissors got quite hot cutting the 16mm aluminium. I made a coolant drip with a thin bit of tube and siphon effect.

    I thought I'd share a couple pictures of what my CNC3040 was doing today. This was making a pocket in 6061-T6 (heat-treated and artificially aged) aluminium.

    Initial go-around.
