    Looking for vslot rail/Cbeam. Drop off saw cuts that are going unused, odd sizes, or extra pieces that are just laying around are all welcomed. THANKS in advance :)

    The goal is to be able to make the Open screen press from bits and pieces that people have laying around so this project can be completed on a budget for anyone that may have extra bits and pieces. A piece of cbeam will be used to to keep the arm aligned. You will have to pardon my lack of 3d modeling experience (I'm still playing with sketchup) I drew up a rough draft by hand. End goal is to produce with +90% openbuilds parts with a few odds and ends purchased from a local hardware store or Amazon when in a pinch
