    I get exactly what you are saying and it does make more sense and is a better long term solution. The leveling screws are a good idea. Would you put them on both sides of the rail or just one side?...

    Hey Dan and others,
    Swapping the parts would not be super hard to an extrusion. I suppose I worry about the "good money after bad". I will contact Nate and see if he will send me an extrusion....

    Thanks I will check out the link. Just as an exercise in frustration I decided instead of just loosening the bolts for the rails I would take them completely out of one side. Then I wanted to see if...

    I am pretty mechanically minded but just don't know enough about linear motion to know what is acceptable. With the rails loosened from the table the action is much smoother and the gantry will...

    I put a lot of thought in that direction. And on paper probably makes the most sense. However I just don't think I'm willing to put any more major $$$ at this machine. I have no idea how much wear...

    One end of the table is about 3/16" to an 1/8" wider than the other. The tapped holes in the cross members are not in a grid or spaced evenly. Pretty sure the frame in not "flat" either. The main...
