    At the moment its using m8 threaded rod and delrin nuts. My upgrade to trapazoidal leadscrew and delrin anti backlash at some point to gain some speed. Running at 24ipm at the moment. Slow but accurate.

    Actually quite a bargain given how much messing about was involved to make nuts before. The best thing about these is how easy they are to mount.

    Have you thought any more about making round ones with a flange(im sure thats what they call the surrounds) or even better antibacklash ones using a split end and a spring?
