    Hi,

    I want to attach 3 x "Mini V Linear Actuator Kits" to each other using the end plates. I also want to attach two of them to v-slot 20 x 40 rail. What length of M5 screws should I use to attach the "Mini V" to the rail using "t-nuts" and to each other? Do I use separate M5 hex nuts when bolting the "Mini V"s to each other?

    Thanks for your help.

    Richard

    Hello @Richard Allen
    You can attach them to each other and to V-Slot using the Double Tee Nuts and 6mm Low Profile Screws
    The double tee nuts keep it nice and low profile as well as adds a little bit of a strong back bone to the bent metal casing so this works out really well.
    Here are a couple example pics that may help
