Hi all.

Having only recently broken up my Ormerod at work I've just ordered one for home. Ironically found a few on sale in Australia on ebay. Hope to have it back here for less than £200 including duty! Will be looking closely at the metal x-axis and any other mods people recommend to build in from the start.

I've ordered some bits to improve the zaxis drive as I had screw pitched z wobble on my last Ormerod.

What artefacts on the prints should I be looking out from the acrylic xaxis parts or is it more a case of the axis compensation going out if you breathe on the machine?

Parcel arrived. Charged the 20% duty plus £10 handling charge from parcel force. Around £41 in charges, so brand new Ormerod 2 for around £190 including shipping!
