All parts are custom made to assure proper fit and are designed to install into the original Mounting holes ... NOTICE .. This kit will require minor machine work on the front of cross slide for COUPLER clearance and additional 3 tapped holes in rear of cross slide to allow rear mounting extension plate of the ball screw to bolt up .That's it .... Contact me prior, for I do supply this information on the install instructions for you. If you are unable to do this machine work, I can do it for a reasonable price, and this one part will fit and ship in a small flat rate USPS box. The Z axis will mount up in original holes and does not require any additional work to install.
The Threading function can be made possible by use of a spindle encoder which may be purchased separately .
