    Answer to both your questions is make your own, or win the lottery so you can buy some.

    Also where do you get the actual rotating nuts from as I can only see the manufacturers, not any suppliers etc
    You could try Jonathan ..Clive

    Read the entire thread last night and decided exactly that!

    Jonathan, is there any possibility you could produce a pair of the mk3's from said thread? I would gladly pay you for these as I simply don't have access to the required tooling (currently have a large lathe, that's all)??

    If so, do you have any sketchup diagrams so I can incorporate them into my design?

    Many thanks.

    The Sketch file i made is in Jonathans thread post #83 http://www.mycncuk.com/forums/linear...html#post52272. so you can download it and incorporate it in your model. However i advise you to produce it, when you 100% decided on the exact motors/steppers, servo, size, etc. / and the machine drawing is finished, as maybe you will need to redesign the motor holding plate, in context of your design, or just leave that plate at last, however have in mind that if you decide to drive the gantry with 1 motor for example, this will affect the whole design, as the hole where the belt goes in should be at different place. You can start though with ordering the bearings, the rotating part +the lock nuts and pulleys, that's what i did

    Bringing this one back to life guys. Life's been pretty crazy lately but I should have a little time for this now, I've sold a few of my projects and am trying to consolidate everything so that I have a little more focus.

    Question for silyavski... Are the rotating nut diagrams proven, ie a replica of Jonathans mk3 or are they a custom design you came up with? Just asking as I want to know if they work wether I can send the file to the machinist to get them made or not.

    Cheers!!

    I think its his own design, the files maybe in the open source section, its been awhile now so I could be wrong.

    Thanks, shortly after posting that comment I found some file Jonathan had uploaded, so Im currently trying to integrate that into my design.

    Here is the Mk4 frame layout, any opinions guys? Ive taken on board other designs in this one, Im making the bed adjustable too on holes inside the legs, so it will have further movement, will that affect anything else do you think?

    Thanks in advance!
