    Hi all,

    More progress has been made and my bank account is starting to hurt! I sorted the bolt problem, counter-bored the plate for M10 socket caps and then heli-coiled the extrusion to match.

    I am taking photos as I go so I think I will do a big dump of information in one go rather than little updates every so often.

    I have started to really think more about swarf and coolant removal during/after machining. Hopefully the paint diagram below will help explain what I'm thinking about doing. The gap will allow me to brush swarf straight off and into a bucket under the bench. Would the proposed design weaken the frame too much?

    EDIT: Infact, could I even remove that extrusion completely or is it going to put too much outwards pressure on the sides?
