Wheels on and all put back together, so far so good.  8)

Setting up and Testing alignment with laser spot beam.
To help in registration a short stroke air cylinder comes up with mach4 output then goes back down before Co2 beam is turned on.
Y axis is set to 150inch per minute X is limited to 700.
Z table axis takes a little to get used to, as Z travel up is actually in the negative direction

Hi Craig, that looks real nice.
"I love it when a plan comes together."

Were you able to get more of the normal connecting hardware for the extrusions ? If so, mind to send me the dealer info as I could use some myself .... since I let a bit too many of mine go.

Again ... VERY nice work.
Regards,
Russ
