What shoud I be targeting for the gantry weight?

Assuming 2100mm wide ganrty with a air scribe
Im comming in just over 50Kg now but some redesign still to do.
That weight includes everything that moves right down to the wiring and torch.

This is the water table with the water removed, at cutting height and overflowing. I have put a gutter around the cutting area to cach any spills and splashes.

The slats are removable. They sit in 3 cages which are also removable. The pic here show the slats remived and a better view of the sump and gutters. here I wanted the water table flat for easy cleanouts.

This a pic of the valves and switch for the water table. Also the auto oiler
The vaalves are just to isolate the pipes. Fill and drain us via the switch.
