The X-Axis scale has been fitted to the front of the table in order to preserve what little Y-Axis travel I have. 240mm is barely enough. I am still able to access the saddle locks and the travel stops so it should work out well.

The X-Axis read head mount. This is going to be changed as I will need to mount a cover on this scale and this bracket will interfere with that. The bracket will be moved under the read head instead of on top but I need to find some material to do the job. This bracket was simply cut from an old piece of RHS tube that I had laying around, but because of the radius of the bend, I cannot simply move it down.

The Z-Axis scale finally mounted. In this photo the scale almost looks bent but I can assure you that it is merely an optical illusion. Don’t worry, I looked twice too … lol … This shot also shows the read head bracket.

Front on view of The Z-Axis scale mount. You may notice the oil sight glass for the gearbox. One of my aims was to not obscure it with the scale.
