adding bearing mounts for the z axis lead screw

The z axis with the motor mount and lead screw assembled and mounted on the x axis. I thought I had more pics of making the z axis but I don't. Pretty much the same as the x axis though.

Another pic. notice my WABCO compressor

Chain guard and rail covers on the y axis

Just a little life hack. If the nozzel is missing the lock.

I've known about the picture rotation with my android phones, and it still seams hit or miss for me.

Project is looking good, will see how long the finish lasts.

And thanks for the plans for the table.

Looking like something, Al! Keep it up!

I'm liking that art deco vise! It needs to be stripped and chromed!

Damn! That looks like a lot of tedious wire routing.
And both pictures are upright.
