The skateboard wheels arrived! I now have all the crucial components of the frame.

The X and Y axis will be driven by common GT2 belts. I plan on having 2 parallel belts per axis.

With the selected components the Peoples CNC Frame will be both strong and agile!

Buying cheap bearings is a gamble. I've gotten horrible groggy specimen as well as extremely well performing ones. The bearings in this project run very smooth, note that there are two per wheel, this greatly diminishes sideways play.
