I just realized that I've never uploaded anything about my latest 4th Axis that I've thrown together - so here are some pictures and a video about it!

This is my OLD 4th axis again :) the new one has been revamped with my 3D Printed Planetary Gears - I'll leave the old article here but please check out the new one HERE and HERE

I'm using standard pillow block bearings and a direct drive stepper motor for now (although that may change) but it seems to work pretty good! I've also included pictures of a tailstock idea for holding the end of long pieces.
