Some progress on the Z axis..
This is the front plate. all holes on the front are for attachment of the KR slide. I can move it up or down a bit on the mount. Basicly the center is where I'd be in the travel which will put the collet nut of my ekstrom carlson spindle maybe .1 or .2" below the bottom attachment plate..
Figured if I mounted other spindles I might want some amount of adjustment.
The ears on either side of the top of the plate will have holes put in to alow mouting of my 10:1 thomson ultra true planetarys (think they are size 060 so they are pretty small) to be installed if I use rack and pinion on to drive Z.
Ignore the extra holes in the plate which are skattered around (I borrow some of my metal from old equipment I find around. Figure I save some $$ and also good recycleing
