Hi John,

My bad, not noting all the pages to the thread before posting. I am now running thru the links I have found in the replies.

Thanks for the ideas and communication....

One day, someone showed me a glass of water that was half full. And he said, "Is it half full or half empty?" So I drank the water. No more problem.

Hi Max

We could have done our last build about 1/2 the cost but kept having to upgrade to better parts. If you want accuracy or repeatability then you should look at some of the upgrades we did and consider higher end over lower end products.

I will be pleased to answer any questions you have, and remember the build is relevant to what you want to do in the end.

Good luck


Cleaning my glasses will not make me look any better, but will make what I'm looking at better!

You might try Heeks cad/cam for software to produce Gcode and its free. You can find it on internet.

Hi John, I use Surplus Center for anything they have. Right now they have 1/2-10 Acme
6' for 16.75.

I hope that helps with your build.
Have a blessed day, and fun making dust, Todd
