You should receive 2 parcels.
One parcel is packed with the spindle and VFD and also 3sets BK/BF.
The other parcel is packed with other items
just found a place that say they can deliver uk wide that sells some pretty reasonable priced box section..
for 2 x 7.6mtr lengths of 50 x 25 x 3 i'm getting it at £72 which all things considered doesnt sound too bad a price

Edit: Just had a look and the 50x50x3 is £11 per length more than I pay my local supplier who I've dealt with for years so all-in-all think that's not unacceptable difference if only buying small Qty 7.5mtr gets you a fair way with a average sized machine and more than enough for a small machine.

jazz.. you do know my design uses 13+ mtrs of 50 x 25 and another 2.5+ mtr of 60 x 40.... i've a feeling it's massively over engineered
going to be redesigning this now which is a pain considering i have the rails and screws here today.
the reason for the redesign is i have been using a drawing of the rail bearings from zapp i think. looked at my rails today and thought they aint 60mm wide.. turns out they are 45 mm wide which means they will fit on a 50mm box section which will help me a lot as i only needed 3m of 60 x 40 and it was proving to be a bigger cost than i wanted.
so take note guys, make sure you are using the right drawings for your designs before you order
i fell into that trap aswell.
you've made me feel so much better knowing it wasnt just me.. i'm acctually quite happy i noticed as i didnt really like having an odd size box section in my build, so now i get to pull the design apart and possibly even gain some cutting area now... the only limit is i need to restrict myself to 2 x 7.6mtr lengths of steel which i think will be a push
