    Thank you all for the support, I really appreciate it.

    Very nice looking machine. Tell us more about the machine bed. How much did it cost?
    The bed is made of 30 mm thick steel plate with dimensions 1500mm x 950mm. I payed 300 euros for it (weight around 370Kg). Then It was flattened on both sides using big Siemens CNC.

    Then we made ribs inside the plate and on top we put wider metal ribs bolted with m10 bolts. This metal ribs are 10mm thick. At the end, it was flattened again on the both sides.

    On the picture you can see the monster CNC Siemens. We've done a lot of parts for my cnc on it.
    It has travel of 1500mm x 1300mm x 950mm

    Does anyone knows how can I shim down the sittings for the rails and the bed? I was thinking of epoxy but I am not sure. Can anyone give me an idea?

    Today I made holders for the stepper motors. I was thinking of using belt and pulley but it would cost me another 60 euro, so I decided for now I'll go on like this. :)

    How can I level them all?
    If I use epoxy it wont crack under heavy pressure from the bolts?

    Epoxy putty under each plate level then when set bolt down. .. Clive

    If it would fit inside the big Siemens CNC you could skim the plates like you did with the bed.
    Or if you had a large flat surface you could turn the frame upside down, the plates would lie on the flat surface than put some epoxy putty on them before setting the frame on top, wait until set before inverting and bolting.

    Spelling mistakes are not intentional, I only seem to see them some time after I've posted
