I Just moved studios so I've been too busy to post things, but always enjoy reading posts. This upgrade has been a long time coming, here's my machine mostly dialed in. Last year I added the hardened caps to the X and Y rails and the 90 degree outboard table. Once moved in here I replaced all V bearings/wheels and pinions, added a PVC vacuum table to replace all of my removable vacuum plenums, increased my 4 zones to 12, and added t-tracks. So far the PVC with 12 zones has been AMAZING! The front row of 4 zones are smaller then the middle and back row, letting me use smaller fixtures and parts with vacuum. Next I need to design an index system to use with the t slots and add pop-up stops. Off to cut the dovetail pins.
