    I don't have many? The 1605 are on my router, the 2005 are for my mill. These have been spotless and the ones i've bought from Gary are definitely spotless. i lost the balls on the 2005 whilst transfering from the screw to some tube. I ordered a single screw with 2 nuts on it and needed to cut up the screw and mount it in the lathe.
    If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:

  2. As you have pointed out they are a load of crap and most of my time can be checking them and cleaning them.
    Kind of given up on them now and will most likely discontinuing the Chinese ballnuts and standardizing on the better quality Gten range.
    Its not just the swarf, but the tolerances of the balls, the crappy wipers and basic build quality.

  3. our 2005 have blue returns, but i will have a look to see what i have.
