Simple z axis using linear rails instead of wheels. It attaches to the standard workbee plate on the X axis.
The spindle mounts to the half plate that attaches to the linear rail. It is drilled out for 4 m5 screws so any openbuild router mount should attach to it.
It does mount backwards from the way the workbee is designed. I reversed it because it seemed like the best way to use more of the available Z height. The standard mount likes to come down on clamps and whatever is the high point on the bed that isn't my work piece.
New Workbee Z Axis
Hopefully an upgrade of the Z axis of the Workbee.

Reason for this BuildWheels got loose. Decided to try linear rails.
