    Excellent job so far. The cutting of the plexi looks great and seems to me like it should work well.
    That x gantry of yours moves pretty fast in that video... nicely done.
    Keep posting

    That looks cool. I like the dual shaft center mounted stepper motor.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the feedback. The center mounted stepper was just done due to parts available. My supplier was out of 1000mm straight rod, so I went with 2x 500mm and just relocated the mount. I'm still wracking my brain about how to install the tube and 1st mirror. The way Pedro mounted his rear vertical extrusions gave him more options.

    Btw; the M5 8mm screws were on back-order so, it's just been sitting there all week teasing me.

    Crap. I ordered a few packs of those. I hope it's not my fault because I won't get to mine until after the holidays.

    lol ... Naw. I ordered them from my local Fastenal. Matter of fact, they just called me about 30 min ago to let me know they have them.
