    I want to order my first parts. My first build is going to be a long single axis or I might order enough parts to turn it into a x-y axis.

    If I want my x-axis to be 3 meter (2 lengths of 1500mm 20x20) what bracket (and other hardware) do I use to connect them together?

    Also I am assuming that the double V wheel will run inside the rail. Is this correct?

    Use both. The double Tees for inside the rail slot, and thhe plates you mentioned on the outside of the V-slot, facing the inside of the rails (where neither the gantry plates or wheels ride.
