    Hi Guys
    Just need to know if anyone is distributing V-slot in South Africa.
    I have just been given a very cool project to build but I have to have it finished by the 20th of Nov.
    I dont know if you would be able to get it to me quick enough. So if there is anyone closer to my side of the world please let me know.
    my e-mail is [email protected]

    no distributors here that I know of. openbuilds can ship it to you, max length 1000mm.
    regular post might even arrive! (-: (eventually, even if the SAPO strike is really over)
    courier will cost a lot though might be a better option given your time contsraint.

    maybe you can use something else for the build? rounds bars and linear bearings?
    or if you are practically handy maybe you can modify 8020 rail into vslot using a woodworking router with a V bit.
    then have the V wheels and spacers shipped, get bearings and bolts etc locally.

    Hi Chris,

    Did you manage to source any V-slot extrusions in South Africa? I am based in Durban, South Africa and would like to build a CNC Router using V-slot extrusions.

    Please mail me on [email protected]

    Cheers.

    @Alan Hunt ..... in stock here Extrusions - DIYElectronics though some of it appears to be mislabelled. Also I see nothing bigger than 20x40, sad. Is it genuine Openbuilds? I have no idea.

    David, thanks for your reply. I have found V-Slot Extrusions at Aluminium V-Slot Profiles

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Cheers.
