We bought a liteplacer kit from http://www.liteplacer.com/

Here are some observations and minor improvements we cam up with here and there:

Grounding the machine

The official liteplacer assembly guide does not go into much detail when it comes to ESD and grounding the liteplacer machine parts: http://www.liteplacer.com/select-a-table/ There are sliding parts moving on rubber wheels so ESD needs to be dealt with.

We came up with a way of connecting together and grounding all metal parts of the liteplacer with 4mm cable eyelets.

When selecting which screws to use the eyelets with consider that aluminum is only conductive if the screw cuts directly into the metal. First we considered drilling additional holes and cutting threads but ended up finding existing screws in all required locations.
