Hit a few snags last night as I proceeded to attempt to drill the holes in the pipe for the Z axis. First, I couldn’t find a pencil long enough to mark the pipe in the right spots. Then I couldn’t get the pipe to stay put (even w/ clamps) on the drill press so the bit traveled some. I need to go back and re-think my strategy.

Also, a question if someone can clear something up for me. On the Z-axis, how should I position the holes for the tool mount? Should the bottom most one be as close to the bottom of the pipe as possible?
