    Many thanks M-4. That helps a lot and gets me pointed in the right direction. You can tell I'm interested! Never heard of the language but I'll look it up. You have created a beautiful machine but is there anything you would do differently? Any hints of what I should look out for? I know G-code put post-processing is foreign to me. All the best.

    Thanks for the comment Saltfever! G code is very easy to understand, there are several tutorials on the Internet. This project could have been done with a toothed belt, it would be a change. However, I preferred gears because I think they last longer.
