    Hello @Jesse Gordon
    You have some great ideas on the way your mounting the wheels to your system.
    Keep up the great work and thank you for sharing

    I tried making a screw type extruder but I think it needs some modifications before it works right.

    Anyway, I got motors mounted for X and Z, and also X and Z cable drag chains installed and the Y drag chain sized and planned.

    I also have 250 feet of stranded cat 5 which I intend to try to use for encoder signals using RS422 twisted pair and I might even try running the motors on the remaining pair. ha ha. I'll draw fire from the readers for running a motor on a long 24awg wire if I don't draw fire from my wiring harness, but they are 24 or 48v motors so they will have reduced current.. I hope..

    Sorry about the quality of the photo - lighting and background make for an awful picture but it was quick and I was in a hurry!

    I'm still alive! Life's been crazy, but I'm working toward freeing up some time, Lord willing this year, to work on this again!
