    I know! Space is tight and I have to try and keep it clear as our freezers in the garage and the rest of the family object to aluminium chips in their feet for some reason?!
    It is taking an age but slow and steady it will be finished eventually!!! Cheers guys.

    Hi Joe,

    Coming together nicely now. Is there any reason on the gantry for putting the X axis bearings out the back and the spindle hanging out the front? Normally you would put a bearing near the spindle axis to give more support. Do you need to cut right over the edge of the machine?

    Not saying it won't work as drawn because it will, just that it could be a little better if there was no reason for the bearings positioning as drawn.

  12. The reason was clashes in fixings. I am going to make some changes to that area anyway to bring the ball screw mounts to the outside of the gantry sides, so I'll try and take on your advice too... Cheers
