Wrench-built machine update
As you can see, Ben and Bill figured out how to make decent motor mounts for the standard NEMA-23 RepRap stepper motors out of our 1" square perforated tube. Lead screws were also cut to length, collared, and coupled to the steppers. Also, in the second photo, you can see the horizontal stage attachment to the drive nut on the lead screw.
At the second meet, Ben re-worked the Z stage and added a motor mount and lead screw to it. I'll get photos for another update as soon as I can.
