    i've added steppers to my drawing.
    brackets are made up of 5mm steel welded in to shape and i think maybe bolted to the box section, the top of the stepper supports will have slots for tension of the belts.

    i've also beefed up the underside of the bed.

    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

    If thats delivered and inc Vat then it's an excellent price for a Web based company.?

    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
