I'm finally getting around to designing and building my x2 mill! Been kicking this can down the road for a long time.
The Y has me thinking . For the X I used a couple of thrust bearing on the right side [might be overkill] - Bored into the existing retainer, each side leaving a web in the middle - Hand crank lock nut does the holding. Other end (stepper end) has one of the regular bearing types to keep shaft and stepper aligned. The Y . . . Only one end has bearing support and not a lot of room to work with . . .. . . I would just have to bore the diameter and depth in the end of the t shaped. Piece pictured above.
