Definitely A...my axis (I call it Y axis) is 850mm wide and I use a 1610 ballscrew.Neil...
i will take the steel frame route.
there is a useful post where i've seen nice frames from Dean and Boyan... i've made a mix :-)
I've seen a post where Dean suggest 2 fixed ends for the ball screw
"To give you an idea I recently built a Slaved axis 4x4 router with 20mm Dia 10mm pitch screws 1700mm length Fixed/Fixed ends with 2 x 3.1Nm steppers"..
the 2 beams supporting the rails can be slightly not parralels so an adjustment for fixed ends must be adjustable.
if you have made something like this i'm really interested.. thanks

Thanks to every one after many hours of reading here is what I will make.
Here is the final version before starting the build and ordering the parts...
the green frame could be made on a bench before the red / yellow...
adjustable mounting of the ends...
the green plate is 15mm ground plate maybe. i'have found 20mm but is not ground...
between collet and frame (without bed)
218mm Z up an 68 mm Z Down.
For the plates 40, 50, 51 supporting the carriage would it be better to have 20mm not ground or 15mm ground ?
Do you have any comments before I start the build ?

Orange plate not needed, punch down from plate 51 to the nut (see pic example).
Or, if you really want to create a box, punch down from plate 51 to plate XX but make orange plate an X shape, locate nut in the center of the X (less material than current orange plate).
