    That looks like a great build! Have fun and please keep us posted.

    BTW, with your future orders you can find your tracking number on your "Orders" page of the parts store.
    Goto;
    1. "My Account" tab of "Parts Store"
    2. Log in
    3. Select "View Orders Status" tab on right side.'
    4. Pick the order number that corresponds to your order and press "view order status" on right menu.
    5. Locate you tracking number near the bottom.

    They don't send them via email.

    @stargeezer The store does send the tracking number via e-mail. That is what i was using to track my order. The fact that they only sent one tracking number, made me think there was only 1 box coming. Also had it held at the UPS shipping center, due to porch theft in our area. Was surprised when the big box arrived. (over 50lbs.) Glad i was at home when it did get here.

    Found that the 55mm low profile M5's don't play nice with the high torque steppers. Changed to a M5 crown bolt from Home Depot. Fits like a glove. Much nicer fit and finish.

    I used 4 M5 x 8mm (maybe 10mm, i don't recall) into T-nuts. There are already holes in the large plates that align with the C-Beam arms.

    Thank you for the fast response. Loving this design! Out of curiosity what is your impression of the gradus with the big foot so far?
