The tricky part of the 1.1 was the z axis binding. You will find that with the upgraded software 1.7.3 that all is much easier. If doing jewelry I recommend printing with the 1:1 red/cherry mix. You will get really good results and short exposure times.
The bearing install is very easy and just tighten all the screws just so the bearings stay put, don;t have to over do the tightening. Want everyone to have successful prints, so let us know how it goes.
