Time to upgrade my gantry and make it HOLY!! So come join me in the shop and lets get going ;-)

Why you should always use Antisieze where the ball screws go into the mounting blocks/bearings...... otherwise you'll have to beat them off or cut them off even after just 6 months!!

In this series I am going to tear down my home built CNC and show you what I thought I did right and a few things I definitely did wrong. Hopefully this can save some other people on the learning curve I went through.

Lets talk about collet nuts and why you need spares!! Also get yourself some extra parts to keep on hand just in case........ you don't want to be waiting a month for parts when you have orders to fill......
