|Well padded. No loose parts moving around in the box during the ride back.|
|After peeling off a thick layer of "onion skin", here lie the contends|
|The tubes are for the precision leadscrews. I'm impressed! The screws I bought from Sherline were merely wrapped in brown papers. Guess the price paid made the difference.|
|The rest of the parts out of their boxes. The tube on the lower right is the Way-Oil. The Gibs were said to perform better than the stock ones. Both recommended by Tim of A2Z.|
|Anti-lash Nuts. Spring loaded to take up backlash. Some parts look a little worn. They may be just tear-out, inflicted during testing. Hope they work fine.|
3 views of the saddle. Look SOLID. The blue colored strips are of the same material as the ones on the Gibs.
I'll be leaving the country for the next 4 days starting tomorrow. Hope to have sometime during the coming Saturday to install the precision leadscrews on the X and Y axis. Z will have to wait as the backlash nut mount has to be fabricated first. I'll be away again next Monday and Tuesday. So little time yet so much to do.....
