    looks great.. so to understand a little more about the linear rails. they bolted up to the v slot rail (20x40?) with insert nuts or did you have to drill into the v slot rail

    Hey slm222 :

    Yes, its a 20x40mm v-slot. The mounting holes on the linear rail were just a bit closer together than the centers of the v-slot, which are 20mm, I think they were about 19mm or so. Odd hole spacing, just enough so I could not get a screw into a t-nut in the slot. Come to think of it, maybe they were 3/4", which is pretty close to 19mm. Doesn't make much sense for them to be inch spacing, when everything else was metric...

    Anyway, I did not modify the v-rail. I solved the problem by drilling out the mounting holes on the linear rail as much as I could without breaking through the edge. They were 5mm to start out with, I think I drilled them out to about 5.6mm or so. This gave just enough extra width clearance so a standard low profile screw would go through the hole and into a regular t-nut.
