Yesterday I finally got a chance to try out my new vslot stuff from http://store.makerstoolworks.com/t-slot-extrusions-accessories/ and so far it's looking really neat.

Shown is the Z and X axis. Y axis not yet built.

I kind of cheated on the tensioning mechanism for the V slot rollers. Specifically, I didn't put in any adjustment. I just drilled the holes yay so and tried it, and it was nice and snug. I think a bit too snug, and I'll probably end up having to enlarge half of the holes and put the eccentric adjusters in, as well as buying new Delrin rollers since I suspect they'll crack or deform under the pressure. We'll have to wait to see.
