Everything you need to upgrade!

Cool! Thanks for the links, I will add where I got mine from on here as well.
I am working on a openscad version (i uploaded the progress to this thingy) as well.

Would love to see a pic of your mod! I am going to make one with 16mm linear guides soon (once the parts are in and the design is complete) and I guess I will make a dremel mount as well

Your welcome ! I would stick with the motor I used way more powerful than a dremel and worth the price you wont be disappointed.
I used this for the motor mount..
but you could use this to ....
Hear are the Z mod I made its way taller and works great had to make some ajustments in the holes they was a bit off but it worked out great.
Feel free to copy or use the idea but the thing I cant stress enough is to use a bearing on the bottom of the Z Access it keeps it stiff but allows for free movement.

Cool! I actually ordered a 500w spindle as well (from banggood), will make a quick design for it (I am pretty quick with openscad now)
The Z bearing hole is already in this design as well ;)
Didn't know about these other "things", thanks for showing!
