    You mentioned you strengthened the X axis. What did you use?

    I drilled thru one rail and tapped the other and screwed them together at 2 points about 1/3 in. Very sturdy.

    Thanks. I am still tossing ideas around in my head on how to make my x axis.

    I am going to drill mine also...it appears that the only flex is coming from movement between the two x rails...bolting them together should increase the stiffness
