    Ditto to that comment! Following your thread with interest, thanks Chaz, please keep the posts coming.

    Whilst some of the detail is sometimes beyond me (on all threads), the photographs make sense to me.

    Ok, thought people had lost interest in the crap I was trying to do.

    So, status update.

    Z Axis plates arrived today, Ill try and machine them on the weekend. I need to mount the X rails, having some issues to solve around how to epoxy / glue the nuts in. Tried rawl bolts, been advised against them and they create spacing problems which I need to solve.

    I dont have all the bits needed to complete and I still need to sort out limit / home switches etc but I'm feeling confident that I am not too far out now. The last phase has started to pick up momentum. That said, fair bit to do still, so lets see.

    Lol. Thanks.

    I have good advice that I can supply once I am done. The one liner is, if you are thinking of making something like this, dont. If you are still thinking of it, dont, and still, dont.

    That said, it can be done and there are many things I would do differently, not in terms of design etc, but the way that I work and what tools / stuff you need to make this happen.

    This is on such an epic scale it almost ranks with Noah's Ark.

    I think it has to be finished, there has to be a conclusion, at least a video of it cutting. Something a futuristic Time Team can search the archive for when they recover this behemoth intact from the apocalyptic, London ruins

    Ye, ignoring the cash spent, also keen to just see if it works.

    Managed to get some of the Z axis completed today but I need a large mill to square everything and get this completed.
