Signs of Movement

Yesterday (Yes WORK on Christmas day) I got the X and Y axis slides installed.
Installation of the bars that the linear bearings run on took much use of the eyechrometer. This is due to the bars needing to be perfectly parallel.

The beast is starting to get quite heavy... I may not be photographing it on the deck soon.

Due to the design of the clamping parts things keep slipping around from time to time. If the fastenings are tightened any more the magic CLICK comes out of the acrylic and I'm delayed by another 12 hours waiting for glue to dry. Hopefully it will stay square enough while building parts.
