The Z-axis stage is made of plastic / perspec / plexiglass and mounted on four spindles. It moves up and down and sits on four bolts. It's a reasonable approach, but prone to wobble if the spindles are not 100% straight. I found this out after crashing the z-stage into the build platform and warping some of the spindles.
