The mill mounted...and fortunately I've got the hang of this pic posting thing. I've modified the ones above to fit the screen better...

Ha running next week :) I'm currentely in Romania and will be for a couple of weeks...and I'm not expecting much progress to be made on my CNC project whilst I'm away...(there's just no motivating some folk).

Still maybe I'll find some bits of ally whilst I'm here for the brackets. If I had made up a template they could have cast me the brackets here in alloy or cast iron no problem.
