Mendel Mayhem: X-axis

Following the Mendel mechanical construction notes on the wiki, I decided to cheat and not do them in order.

I had been acquiring bits over time so have just about everything I need and I know my electronics work, but I didn't feel like getting in the cutting/grinding/filing mode tonight, yet wanted to make some progress, so I skipped to the Mendel assembly notes section on the wiki and then decided to start with the X-axis.

Assembly of the basic carriage unit went quite quickly, but I need to make the 'thin plate' items (opto flags') and cut the bars before I can finalise the piece, so I guess I have to follow the the order of the wiki. That said, now's a good time to go indoors...

(Note to self: Fit Opto flag and calibrate runners for bars once bars have been cut)
