Hello,
I am building a modified version of the jgro plans. I am about ready for the lead screws and nuts. My question is about the lead screw; do I have to use the expensive lead screws and nuts, or can I use all thread and correct any deviation of measurement in the programming? I'm not really looking for a cheep way out so much as not spending money where I don't really have to.
Any input would be much appreciated.

As a new member, this is my first post. I did upload a picture of my machine, but I haven't found where to look at yours yet.
