    Did consider it, but did not want to drop the actuator torque by that amount (/5) and cause other issues. Also 2025 are not that common to purchase were I live.

    The new 2010 ballscrews turned up and were quickly installed (easy to do on these actuators). Wow what a difference :), tracking is so much better (super smooth) and they are much quieter in operation as they are running slower. Obviously as I increase the actuators range they will lose some of this in long movements, but the change was well worth the effort. May keep my eye out for some 2016s if they ever become available as my 1.8Kw servos should be able to drive them.

    Somewhat, as we had to do the second inspection of the house we purchased via FaceTime. FYI ended up purchasing in Brisbane.
