When marking through holes to locate drilling holes in the y and z angles, make sure you mark the outside, not the inside, or the measurements won't be right! Nearly got that all wrong.

I've been looking at to work out where to attach the y-rails to the x-stage, and two pictures show them in very different places. I have plumped for centring the rail across the stage to see if that works.

Here is a diagram of the y-rails:

I have also chosen where to put the fixed side bearings, or PTFE disks in my case, and will experiment with springs and the swinging brackets. I'll put up the x-stage diagram when it's decided.
