X axis work

I've just started on the X axis and found I needed parts from McMaster Carr. So the parts are on order and I am working on the drive side of the Y axis. It turned out I had some nice angle brackets from the hair blending machine that I could modify a little to work. Pictures follow.

On a side note I've been working on a patent for another idea and had the chance a few months ago to go to the USPTO for a weekend to attend some workshops. I met a lot of people and made some good conections, I also met David Kappos who is the USPTO chief. I have to admit unless they are blowing smoke you know where their set-up seems to be really transparent and straightforward. Most of my questions were answered and I came away feeling like the process was very manageable and that I could do most of the work myself ( an exception being some legal writing) I am now in the process of writing up three provisional applications with the hopes of being able to try and commercialize before committing to the cost of the full blown patent.
