    The ones I got are in the links below. They are nice but a little loud (not loud enough to be noticeable with stepper motors and the spindle moving) maybe some lithium grease will fix them up. The only thing about them is they require a lot of screws to hold them down but the rigidity of them make it worth it.

    I got these ones

    along with for extra blocks
