And yes you can buy the Samson rails and gear racks.

When I was looking to buy the full length gear racks I was told that you don't offer complete sections of gear racks just like the side rails are in 2 sections its to make it more feasible for shipping . I to had buy the rails that I will have to cut to make a 4x8 table.


Frankly, I would get the longer rails and NOT cut them. Let them extend over one end of the table beyond the legs to make a 4x10 table, and set up an attachment to do pipe cutting at the overhang!

Good Idea but I was told by Jokecam that they did not offer 10ft rails I was told the longest there is available 5ft. They said it was to keep shipping down.

They do not sell 10-foot rails, but you can butt two 5-foot rails together on each side.

Dude just order 2 rails and the longer wire harness and then the square stock to make the frame you might have 700-800 tied up into without the hassle of dealing with them on the phone.... They don't offer a full length rail due to shipping cost that's what I got told.

What are you gonna do for the cables going to the motors i don't think they will be long enough as it sits now unless the boom pivots somehow.
