Linear Rail Upgrade?

Postby SlagBandit » Tue Nov 22, 2016 9:27 pm

I recently built a 4' x 10' Torchmate 1 table. I have had it running since the picture was taken but not real happy with bearing setup and design. Wondering has anyone found a low cost linear rail and bearing block manufacturer ? I think I would like to upgrade both X and Y axis!

Thanks

I got mine from China and they made me a great deal on a combo with shipping. Took about a week to get, came DHL. PM me what sizes you are looking for and lengths and I will try and find the contact info.

I got mine off aliexpress. A bit short for you but I'm sure this seller will have what you want. Go for the 25mm rail. Anyway thats what I was told to get by someone who makes tables for a living.

gonna throw this out there-

Addin another motor to your gantry would serve you better than adding linear rails.
