    Now im thinking about moving the screws to the outside of the ibeam again, so i can connect my table to the side rails better.

    Easy enough i guess. These new 2010 screws may not fit where the 1605's are currently located. Its pretty tight now. Well see.

    I have an ESS wiring question about this diagram from automation technology. It shows 5v going into the ESS and then out of the terminal board and supplying all 4 drivers with 5v. Is that correct? I have a clean 5v 5a power supply, i was going to run 5) 1 amp fuses to the ESS and the 4 drivers.

    So... I guess that was a dumb question... I will stick to the diagram. Lol. . I got my power supplies, ESS, drivers mounted in a pc tower. Just about ready to wire it up.

    My bk15's and bf15's came in, they are larger than the bf/bk12's of course, so i will be moving them to the outside rail afterall.

    The nema 34 640's are in, just waiting on the new 2010 screws now.

    My build was taking up too much of my workspace at work, so i have taken it home to finish.

    Last week i was given a lincoln 275 square wave tig machine and i sent the control board out for repair and I've hunting down tig accessories.

    New ballscrews came in. I think i have their location figured out now. My controller box is almost done.
    Hurry up and wait....

    Your screw pitch is where you can gain speed 2005 is 5mm pitch this 5mm pitch is normally used for the z axes if you are going to change them get 10mm pitch screws 2010 ballscrews this will double your machine speed with the same RPM

    I would have used 4" ibeam looking back now so the 2010 ball screw bearing blocks would have fit very cleanly inside the ibeam but this will have to do for now.

    Got my welder repaired but I need to grab some argon from work. Made some aluminum parts. The uprights came out pretty well. It's as square as i can make it anyways. Sure moves nice and is solid even with only 4 top screws holding it together. Ready for the backplate now.
