It seems the problems I've been having with my new Z axis is because I was trying to use my old threaded rods. These original threaded rods are 1/4", the Prusa parts I'm using are 5/16"... whoops... so I'm reworking this, in addition to installing kFreeBSD/Debian on another system. (I don't know why this didn't publish when I wrote it)
In other news I'm using my heated bed again, it makes PLA prints almost perfect. I still get little the "character" of PLA issues; blobs, hair-like strings, but distinctly much better than anything I've done before. Unfortunately this bed, as it is, will not work for ABS, I can only get it up to about 60C.
