    I have come up with an application and have drawn out what it should look like.
    I could really use some one to review the plan with me and help suggest what brackets and plates etc I should consider.

    I have attached my drawings and I could use answers to the following questions:

    At the junction of rails A and B:
    How can i maximize stability?
    Is it possible to create a right angle carriage plate for added rigidity?
    Am I better of with a lead screw or belt drive?
    Can the drive mechanism mount underneath to keep it clean of debris?

    Drive mechanism:
    I have drawn this using two motors to move the carriage but can i do so using only one?
    I was thinking maybe two drive screws and connecting both them via a belt to one motor?

    Thanks for your review.
