    Idea seems feasible. There functionally is no limit other than still having room to move them around. Double belting them might be a good idea though.

    Double belting is simply gluing an additional belt in the track where the teeth interlock with the teeth of the main belt. This helps reduce stretch on the main belt and helps reduce positional errors. The system is described several times throughout the Ox CNC build and is also detailed in this video.
