    Working on re-designing the Z axis. There are some aspects of the CNCnewbie units that I don't like, so I now plan to make my own using probably 20mm profile linear guide (same as used on X and Y), and 3/8 leadscrew (using the excess cut from my Y screws possibly).

    Haven't decided whether I want to go for the full 4 bearing setup, or use 2 of the long variety bearings.

    Also reconsidering my bearing setup to capture the leadscrew. The bearing blocks I bought from servocity are looking pretty wimpy.

    Here's the bearing blocks I bought for the X axis:
    1/2" Bore, Face Thru-Hole Pillow Block

    I believe it uses this bearing:
    http://www.product-config.net/catalog3/output/82052925/specsheet.pdf. Static load rating of 71 lbs, and I have 2 of them. Should theoretically be enough but I'm more worried about the fact that they are so thin and I am not planning on turning down my leadscrew

    Considering something more like this, and I wish I had seen it sooner:
    1/2" Two Bolt Flange Bearing UCFL201-08
