can you tell the the distance from the centers of the smooth rod and leadscrews? I'm trying to use these with the stock stepper holders and they are not able to turn them. I think they are binding up so I want to make a new plate for holding the rods. Thanks!

What are the various screw and nut sizes needed for this?

what size screws does the copper nut need to attach to the carriage? m3?

Does this make a big difference over the stock machine?

What leadscrews are these designed to work with?

Folger sells 300mm long 8mm lead screws as a minimum, so it's reasonable to start at that as a baseline.

Thanks for sharing! It looks great, but..I am having a problem opening the files. Please forgive me, but I am new to 3D printing. If I open it in repetier (in MM) it is very small, if I open it in inches it's huge! Any suggestions? I also tried SketchUp, but I couldn't import it :(

Thanks again!

I apologize, i didnt notice that my cad software's export settings were in centimeter.
Im gonna update them later. Meanwhile, you can either set the units of imported objects to cm or change the scale to 10.
Edit: Just checked, repetier cant import in cm. So ill be re-uploading the stl files in mm in a while.

Well, that was easy! :) Easy fix! THANKS!!
