Default Balanced Zen Line Stage

Hello to all of you!
My name is Martin and this is my first post on this forum. I want to introduce myself with a finished project. It is another Balanced Zen Line Stage. A written report with more details will later be on www.PassDIY.com. For now I like to post some pictures of my version and a link to my web album.
Cheers, Martin

Beautiful work. Did you do the CNC boards and other machining yourself?

Thank you all for looking and your kind words!

@PH 104: Yes, and that was the easy part for me. I am an engraver and work as an instructor in the arts and crafts department of a school. Thus I have access to a CNC-milling machine, software, lathe etc. We also have a department for electronics engineering and I could have made the circuit boards there, using industrial technology like a laser plotter and etching machine. To the great surprise of some colleagues of that department, I have it done on my own. I used available machinery and needed only an absolute minimum of advice which makes me proud.

@max426: Thanks for explaining “fugly”. And to give you an idea of the my working pace, Jim...
I have discovered the PassDIY web site during the winter holidays. In January I was reading and thinking about the project. The first parts arrived by the end of January and that was the time when I took up CAD drawing. The main board was milled March 8th, the first sound test was April 12th. That makes a total of just 10 weeks for building. I was very consequent and worked each day a bit and all the weekends. I guess that I have spent approx. 300 hours or so. Now you might think that teachers seem to be under occupied…. my timetable consists of 31 hours of instruction per week.

Your project was your hands-on example in class, didn't you? ...that would be +31 hrs/wk!

Seriously, that hardware looks really great!
