    Is there a place where I can get the engineering properties (bending moment, weight per cm, hardness, etc.) of the vslot rail? I want to build something strong enough to support the load, but since this is intended to be 'portable' I don't want to overbuild it.

    Start here: How to calculate V-Slot® deflection | OpenBuilds

    And remember strength is irrelevant. Flexibility/deflection is what matters. By the time you get to the point of the material actually yielding in structural failure it will have deflected well beyond any level of usability.
