    Thanks, MaryD! I've hit a bit of a snag in my calibration of the machine, though. I can't seem to get the frame square. Every surface I've tried to build it on is off just enough that when I get the machine put together, things are off by about an 1/8" over the run of the axis'. I've rebuilt the frame three times now. :) I'm going to have a friend help me get a flatter work surface built and try again. Overall, I'm enjoying the build and the problem solving challenges it's supplying, though.

    You used to press the shift in the center of the circle. Appropriate to use to create a form of clamping spiral of Archimedes.
