Material Failure

Well bad news is that my gantry base was destroyed by me adjusting my badly drilled holes for the y-axis bearings. The MDF was from an old drawer from the mid to late 90’s which had been subjected to constant use and abuse during its ‘professional life’, this along with some seriously bad workmanship on my part by drilling the drawer by eye with no guides or jigs. See I decided to drop accuracy for speed and get the machine up and running and use it to cut all the load bearing parts from better material.
