ball screw support block

I cut the CNC lathe ball screw to length today and turned the other end to size. I found a chuck of alumninum to make a end support from. Maya helped me face the piece and then I drilled and bored it. Measured out the shape of the block and cut it on the Grob and then trued it up on the Bridgeport. I'll need to measure the offset on the screw and mill the block to final dimensions as well as drill it for mounting to the lathe bed. I mocked it up on the lathe when I got home and I think this should work really well.
