    Hello I just recently ordered a set of 25mm parts and started the build. So far so good.
    A friend of mine cut and drilled the pipes for me.They are inox, 25mm OD, 1,5mm thickness.
    The issue I have is that the holes have been drilled on both sides of the tubes (see-thru holes). Will the rollers on the XYZ part go over the hole?
    If so then I have to redo the pipes..correct ?

    Just make sure there’s no burrs on the holes, shouldn’t make a difference.

    Well, the holes are laser cut and very nicely done.looks smooth to me.
    The bearings are 7mm height, I had the holes 5mm in diameter.
    I’ll cross fingers when mounting it..

    Thanks!

    They will go over the holes but could cause binding and will probably cause artifacts in the work.

    I guessed so. I will re-do the holes then.Can probably rotate the pipes a little and find a good spot, the bearings are 120° apart so..

    You can also just flip them over. Holes on top won’t bother anything, mine have them from when I rebuilt my cnc.
