What to look for in linear rails

Postby quadcells » Sat Sep 29, 2018 9:01 am

Hello,
I just received my linear rails from Robotdigg and these are the first linear rails that I ever bought. What am I supposed to be looking for besides missing bearings and how true the rails are.
I can see the bearings as I slide the carriages up and down the rails. The carriages seem to slide effortlessly and the rails look true.

Sorry, haven't been monitoring the forum here - we're over at forum.railcore.org now

If you carriages slide smoothly and consistently along the length of the rail, that's what you're looking for. Consistent motion.
