Yes, i've got put some WD40 in there with a bit of grease :) The machine cuts quite well, I've made a temporary dust shoe out of ply wood that looks awesome. I've got a few problems but I will discuss this in another thread :) Just received my inductive home switches and my 3D printer will be delivered today so I can make their holders. I've got a lot of things to improve on the machine :)

That's right, the main gantry is constructed with a torsion box, so it's like an acoustic box as you say :)
