This build followed the Ox Cnc build listed by Mark Carew here on Openbuilds with some unique alterations. I will not duplicate here what Mark has already described during his Ox Cnc build. I will however show you the changes that I made to my version of this machine. Before beginning, be sure to review the Ox Cnc build by Mark Carew. The link is shown below. His video's are extremely helpful.

All of the parts that I used are listed in the parts list shown below. Here is the Z Axis Assembly:
