Got the X axis motor attached. Have almost 14" of X travel. Need to lubricate the leadscrew. Currently can only jog at 15"/minute without horrible sound.
Have an idea to regain 1 1/2 to 2" of Z travel. I'll replace the bottom bearing block from the Z axis with the smaller one supplied by CNCRouterParts.com. I'll remove 1/4" from the bottom of the block and mount it on top of the steel plate and shift the steel plate down as far as possible.
