I'm currently modeling up for a cnc mill machine build using linear rails. My question is what is the advantage/disadvantage to mounting the x linear rail to the saddle vs mounting the rail to the table. To me it seems to make more since to mount the rails to the table (making the table larger and saddle small) but I've noticed alot of diy cnc mills have a large saddle with the bearing blocks mount to the table.
