I took her apart and rebuilt her using aluminium.
A girl always needs a new look!

Hi,

CONGRATULATIONS! You are very determined and ambitious. May I ask you what was the cost of rails and AL profiles and what shipping fees. I would like to make an estimation. I am from third world - Romania - Eastern Europe; a place were you could not find these parts.

Thank you.

Zoltan

She’s looking good!

Are those 6mm or 20mm Igus square slides on the long azis? Did you find them hard to align? Do you recommend them?

They are 20mm rails. I did spent quite abit of time on the alignment but it was not too difficult. They were a bit overkill for the weight but rather safe than sorry. Next time (see the bug has bitten) I would rather get the round ones
