I got alot done today. Everything is test fit together up to the x axis cross slide table. Tomorrow I will make the ball screw nut adaptor, and will work on mounting the front z axis ball screw.

I'm doing stuff in between everything else.

James I would appreciate it if you left my good friend Salty alone. He's helped me touch my inner feelings.

2 hours for this piece. Mounts to the ball screw nut to attach to the table. All metric.  A pic of where this goes. You'll never see this piece again unless something breaks. Is not fun to break a machine down to this point later. Do it once do it right.

Z axis is done except for the motor mount under the table and home switch mounts. That has been off the machine 4 times now.  :fart:

No endplay or backlash on the table at all  :bhappy:
