Just for reference, AXA goes up to 1/2" tooling, BXA only gets you to 5/8", so not a big difference there.

The bolt used in the t-slot shown in the first pic had me a bit concerned, but it looks like you replaced it as shown further down in the pics. It might be fine on a 3-n-1, but I've seen too many broken t-slots to be comfortable using something with that little surface contact.

In any case, congrats on getting it set up, I hope it serves you well!
