    Allan,
    Are all these pillars that support the steppers in Delrin ?
    If so you are wasting your time. Who's X2 is it that you are converting? Chester, Warco, Machine Mart ? reason I ask is that i have an ARC SX2 here that;s got steppers on and retains the standard leadscrews and is far better engineered than the ones in the plans.

    Hi John

    All the parts are in derlin, would be interested if anyone else has done a conversion the same as I'd rather go down a different route if I'm wasting my time.

    Allan I'd listen to what John suggests he's the master when it comes to these machines.!

    I'll get some pics tomorrow and take some measurements as the ARC machine is based on the X1 base long bed which has actually got larger travels than the X2

    It does say in the instructions that you can use aluminium for everything but leave the backlash nut in derlin?

    Have you seen my thread here ? Most of the work was done either by hand or using a lathe.
