Check out other people's project logs to see what they have used -- it's the best way to learn. Also, you might check out the plans Solodex and I have posted recently. They are very similar in size to the machine you are building, and have a complete parts list for the ACME rod and other components needed. You can find them both on cnczone and on my website.
