Now that I can like, actually get around a bit out there in that garage, I just spent a little more time working out some more bugs in this thing.

  1. I believe the tradeoff is to have, either both halves of the half-nut, or an overhead chip cover over the leadscrew. I prefer having both halves. With one half I imagine the hook on top would have to drag pretty hard to keep the bottom half engaged. If it’s going to drag then let it drag in the thread grooves so it’s providing sideways force.


Pansies, Trolls and Liberals are urged to flee this place.
