Well done buddy you'll have great fun making chips.!! . . . Let it rip on the feeds thou it's capable of lot more.
Don't be afraid to find the limit early on it helps long term and makes you more productive. Can make the Old Sphincter twitch thou. .
Great inspiration! Did you fix the rails directly to the extrusions?
Yes. I broke a couple of taps along the way and it took me ages to remove them and rescue the hole.
I used the completed gantry to help me ensure the rails were lined up. E.g. I made up the gantry first and put the long rails in it before screwing them down.
