Some pictures of the X and Y stages

The Y stage at its current form. Here we see the two main kludges I have made: Gluing together two layers of acrylics, and making the rail bearings from pieces of acrylics with teflon tape around them.

Two of the stepper motors and their drivers.

The top of the X stage. Markings are for aligning the Y stage rails. 

The full X stage underside, with motor attached.

The roller skate bearings and threaded rod (underside of X stage). The teflon kludge is even clearer here. I will probably get the right stuff if these don't hold up (unless I switch to magrail:)

The roller skate bearings aligning the X stage. My macro lens appears to front focus?
