This is where the project started some 5 years ago... built from whatever was sitting in the basement. No design, just build-as-you-go. The spindle is an old Dremel held on with a hose clamp. The leadscrews were 1/4-20 threaded rod, coupled to the motors with rubber tubing. The whole machine was built out of an old tabletop.
Amazing what happens if you stick with ti!
