I am doing a gantry robot were the X and Y will be driven by a ballscrew. I would like to machine the ends of the screw myself, but the question is; are they made from a type of hardened steel? Will I be able to machine them?
(BTW I did not ask this question to the seller since I am going to buy them from China and most probably the seller won't understand me, let alone that most probably he won't not know the material used)
Thanks is advance.
