Thanks, that is a really great article.  I think I'll be going the ground ballscrew route.  I wish I could find cheaper ones though.  This machine is really costing a lot of $$$$.

Yeah, you haven't seen the rails, carriages, motors, wiring, electronics and BC drive, spindle, vfd drive, 220 line.  This thing is 6 axis.  I'm sure I bought off more than I can chew, but I like to tread in deep waters.
