Thank you Ken
It works well for me!! While the adjustments/movements are not as fine and not as pretty as the WeMacro setup, I a lot less money in it.The only money spent was the Cheap CNC Router kit and the extra gear reduced stepper motor and the green milling table, everything else I had laying around the house and shop.

Nice! That looks just like my setup, except I use window light, and I don't bother with a background. I hand-hold my camera, and I don't use wires. But, like you, I use a camera and a subject! Great minds...

"Necessity if the Mother of Invention" Your setup does everything that a WeMacro or StackShot digital motorized focusing rail would do for you. The setup is a testament to your mechanical turn of mind.
