    The only concern I have is the x axis- I mounted it on the back side of the table and it burns about 1 1/4" of travel on the Y. I think the Mit. KA scales are thinner.

    Thread necro- I don't think this ever flew-

    VN C tooling is not too difficult to make if you have a lathe, and a VN 12 or the like. While making an actual C collet could be tough, making an ER...
