Spacers and Java Host

Very much satisfied with the excellent quality of the BfB kit. One, minor, flaw only. The 15mm m3 spacers are missing. Ordered these at the local hardware store.

In the mean time...
• fitting sliderbearings and sanding the X Carriage assembly
• struggling with Java to get the Host sw running on Intel iMac OS X 10.4 (Java 1.5 as well as Java 1.6 (using Soylatte16))

For the latter I'm finding out how to compile Java source stuff with Netbeans or Eclipse for that matter. Joined the Getting Java host software to run on Leopard thread (which reports the same problem I have) in the RepRap Software forum as well.
