    Kelly, why did you use a timing belt and why is it so long? Is it feeding two ball screws?

    Just received the new linear ball bearing for the Z axis and it had more slop than the old washing machine bearing. Does any one know a good type bearing?

    Don't they have a screw on the side to adjust the slope?
