X and Y axis sliders method 3 ONLY for belt or ball chain drive.

I am total amazed by this one I expected this to have more friction than the skate bearings and for it to have a lot of play.. neither is the case it is also very very much lighter as it has not got 32 skate bearings. I cant belive how simple the X & Y mechanisims are now and its £16 cheaper to buy..

The full details of the simple to make xy mechanisms is here

I have 2 or 3 more drawings to make for the Y stepper mount and the y drive shaft bearaing mounts.

Then I will make the drawing of the Z motor mounts and the Z drive mechanism still working on a simple solution for the z drive nut holders for monting the z / build table tho...
