CNC Mill Build - Squaring Up

Starting with the two Y motor plates I'm going to build the gantry for the X carriage I built last time.

These are the two X lengths of Makerslide as well as the belt anchors and a belt and pulley.  (I'm going to wait until the end to mount the belts.

The X carriage is now mounted between the two Y plates, completing the Y carriage.

Two more (longer) lengths of Makerslide and the two endplates.

I now have the basis of the machine assembled :D

The mechanics of this bolt together nice and easily, I'm less certain about the electronics :s

Next up is making the Z axis.
