    Interesting, filling the tubing. How has this been working out for you? Have you cut much aluminum with it?

    Hello,
    Nice builds,
    I was wondering if real Hiwin rails and carriers move really freely. I bought the chineese replica, and my god! The carriers are almost impossible to move over the rails.

    thanks

    Looks better than mine, if I can get a hand on the grease gun required i might give them a shot, it would certainly do not hurt

    What a nice build, looks very strong in the Y-Z. I'm curious about how the Y will hold up with one wide HIWN.

    thanks mate. yeah x and y axis where both strong enough but z axis was the weak link.
    I have since stripped this router down and i plan to redesign it with 12mm leadscrews
