Z Leadscrew Bases

Z Leadscrew Bases

with bearings and scrap studding

Z leadscrew bases with bearings and some scrap studding mounted. Fitting M6 studding into 608 bearings required a small collar, which I made from some spare 1/4" copper pipe. I cut the pipe lengthwise, squished it a bit to fit snugly on the M6 studding, then put it in the trusty pedestal drill and sanded it until the bearing fit. The M6 washers foul on the M4 washers around the bearing, so I'll need to cut them down a little.
