    Some of you may have noticed the m8 holes are close to the edge on the ball nut holder, unfortunately the dimensions i was given for the limit switch were wrong and i had to change the size to get it to fit. Grrr

    i like it, what are you using to drive the oil down the tubes ?

    A couple of ideas, one is to either attach them onto a manifold with individual grease nipples, or attach them to an oil resivoir and attach a valve to presurise it to push the oil through.

    I obtained small 220V pump from an iron or steam cleaner, not sure. Payed 2 euro on a boot sale. Similar to the ones used in cars, that throw water on the front glass. However i prefer the 220V version cause no messing with transformers and so plus it vibrates instead of rotates, so pumps slowly, exactly what we need. The one i have is something similar to this one , checked it with oil and it works. Believe the flow is adequate for the purpose.

    Are you sure the pressure output is sufficient?

    Not sure. But pressure for what? it just has to move the oil down, hence slightly help the gravity. Oil, not grease. Your oil system has pressure?
