    You already have a jig. The rails are a jig. I clamped my rails down, made sure they were where I wanted them, and drilled little divits with a hand drill using the rail it's self as a guide with a larger bit. Then I put the piece on my mini mill and drilled with the bit for tapping in the center of the divit I had already made.

    Nic, I am aware that I can use the rail as a jig. Thanks again for the input.

    I imported some pieces from an old design into Fusion. I willprobable use CNCRP Pro r&P drives. The front is being left open for larger stuff & a possible rotary axis.

    Fusion Model - A360

    Thanks fretman. I hope to pick up the steel next week. Though I am still designing, I may delay my assembly, to purchase rails and guides from Automation Overstock. Along with the helical r&p. In the meantime, I will get my electronics going. I looking for recomedations controls.

    Consider that every hole for your linear rails has to be accurately located to better than 0.5mm.
    How do you drill the rails, then weld it together, maintaining better than 0.5mm tolerances.
    I think a lot of people hand drill, or use some kind of drilling jig?
    This is who I was thinking of , 1Jumper10. To me it looks as though he's tapping holes and installing the rail and gear rack prior to assembling . I thought it would be much easier at this point than after its installed etc . At least this is the way I would do it

    But he's not welding anything after the holes are drilled and tapped. If your bolting together, then yes, you'd want to drill and tap before assembly.

    I thought that may be where you were going . I didn't know for sure if this going to be welded at some point . Liking the idea of not welding personally

    Ynnek - I found that thread about helical rack and pinion info. I posted a reply in my thread but it'll probably be more useful to you in your own thread

    Pressuring a Helical Rack and Pinion?
