This whole blog thing may work out for the best as it keeps me from talking off my girlfriends ear with things that she neither understands or cares about :).

While talking about the rest of the Y Axis we realized that the Mendel print tray parts are too complicated to make from Plywood (not to mention pulling part dimensions out of Art of Illusion seems to be impossible), so we are re-engineering the bearing system for the print tray (I'll be nice to get a plastic version printed off when this is all over, but hey it's going to be one hell of an adventure). I've included the drawing we are looking at for the bearing plates and the bearings I picked up today. The dotted lines in the drawings are the angles for the bolts we're using.
