I'm picking up a nice pair of ballscrews (C5) and need to get some mounting blocks. The blocks end up costing more than the screws. $300 for the fixed end and $90 for the free end. Is there any place that have better prices? Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply guys. I'll check out both places.
Be sure to include the price of the bearings in your total. Some come with bearings and some without.
Ballscrew fixed end bearings are most often paired, precise, 45-60 deg. angular contact bearings with a rather heavy pre-load. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Floating end not so much.
