    Looks good! Inertia is definitely the killer feature of proper video sliders, and it looks like it got delivered here- the test shots were nice! I like the 1/4-20 T-nut idea too, I definitely had problems with the aluminum's thread holding capability- but it's designed for extrusion, not machining. These days I'd just do steel angle brackets t-nutted to the sides, but if there's a quarter inch available in the slots, this is a pretty low-profile solution.

    Only thing I'd say is watch the video editing (a lesson I'm working on learning myself, also)- I found myself skipping back and forth to find out what was going on because you lingered on things that didn't really need to be and left processes that didn't need precise description at original speed. Could hack that 41 minutes down to about 15 and make it more engaging and watchable without too much issue, I suspect.

    That Dremel shot still took me back though, haha!
