Ive used these.
I think they are made by SYK, so it is likely you can get them in the states.
With all of the piece parts available to build one's own CNC, I am running into a bit of a wall on the issue of nut brackets (or nut housings) to connect a ball nut to the frame. Is this something most people just have custom made or make themselves if you have appropriate tooling? I know Rexroth has a decent line-up of these, and THK has a few that fit some of its smaller screws, but that seems to be about it and "the 'bay" is letting me down.
How did you handle this?
(Note: there are multiple local machine shops I can use to custom fabricate a part to very tight tolerances, but I'm looking to avoid that if I can save the money...)
I got my first "reasonable" bid on my ball nut housing -- $200. The pre-made ones that are under $100, and are steel, sure look like better deals if you can use a screw that uses them.
I'm starting to purchase and collect the hardware required to build a router.
Must say I'm amazed that out of all the FleaBay sellers, not one that I can see sells ball nut housings to match their ball nuts.
This is driving me crazy. Am I missing something? Surely there needs to be one ball nut housing made for every ball nut produced?
Is everyone buying their nut housings from Zapp Automation?
I am rapidly becoming a fan of Misumi.
Note: they have a promotion running where you get 30% off of your first order up to $150 ($500 order). Given their prices and quality on extrusion, I would not waste my first order promotion on just a nut bracket.
You might also consider KURODA, we use them quite often.

Yes, you aren't looking deep enough into their catalog. If you look at the page(s) above, the end supports are shown in the pictures.

This Kuroda website is weird.
