    The OP has to decide which way to go, I know what was best for me, plus, I only wanted to build the machine once.

    I too only want to build the machine once so steel it is then.

    I've nothing to compare it against but I don't think it had any drawbacks in rigidity, here's some figures; http://www.mycncuk.com/threads/7155-...6572#post56572
    Of course there's nothing to stop you putting something at the ends.
