I have an x-axis! (with rails that need to be shortened slightly before having bearings added)

@qwazix hey dad, sundog thought he was gonna figure out the next steps without any docs or videos, but assembling the bed in place around the z-axis bearings and rails is making his forehead all wrinkly. if you could drop him some of those unedited videos you were mentioning, he'd probably really like that.

@rosalind @qwazix uppity printer, I think the printed t-slot connectors attached to the z-axis bearing mounts are just a bit too tight for the t-slots in question - probably should just sand them down so they don't need a hammer to slide them in, so I can slide the rest of the bed assembly onto them when they're already around the bearings. don't be in such a rush ;p

@djsundog @rosalind yeah that's what I was doing in the videos too but I think assembling the whole bed with the bearings in place and then slotting the z-axes through it is much easier. I was planning to show that in a 3D animation over the video as an alternative.

@qwazix yeah, that totally makes sense - probably tons easier in fact - thanks!
