MakerSlide is an aluminium extrusion with V-shaped rails on either side for wheels to roll along. This means that the extrusion functions as both the structural support and the linear guide rail system at once – bringing down costs and weight.

The biggest issues facing building CNC machines at the moment is the cost of the linear guide rails, design time and fabrication costs. MakerSlide solves all of these and is the reason why it has become so popular within the maker community.

Other components which will be needed to make a simple linear slide include Delrin Dual V-wheels, a carriage plate, spacers, and eccentric nuts to tension one side of the plate. You could also get a dual v-wheel kit, which includes the bearings, washers, nuts and bolts in a convenient package.


Cutting/Shipping Policy:

  • For Aluminium Extrusions, linear shafts and Threaded Rods, the maximum length we can ship is 1 meter.
  • Should you require your rod/extrusion cut down to size, we offer a maximum of two cuts per meter, all done within a ±1mm tolerance (stipulate the lengths required in the comments section when checking out).
  • Bear in mind that the width of the cutting blade is 3mm, so each cut will essentially reduce the overall length by 3mm. E.g. One cut will result in two parts with a total length of 997mm, whereas two cuts will result three parts with a total length of 994mm.
