I have been looking for a linear bearing to use on my cnc router but
like most of you I don't have a lot of money to spend for parts.
I tried to cast one like Dave's (buildyourownideas) from alu. but I just
could not get it right, so I went with my idea for a linear bearing.
I used 1 1/4" x 1/4" x 4" flat bar and skate bearings, tact welded
and drilled the holes in the flat bar then placed two on 5/8" hex bar
and tact welded the two flat bar to get the angle I needed.
this worked good if I do say so myself, some photos are posted
to show what it looks like. I mounted these on 3/4" drill rod for
the X and Y axis. Jim
