hi all. found this on aliexpress
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/CNC-Set-15-1500mm-2x-Linear-Guideway-Rail-4x-Square-type-carriage-bearing-block/608523_32732759401.html
and this
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/20mm-linear-rail-Guides-HB20-L1500mm-2pcs-Flange-block-HBW20CC-4pcs/608523_32679338236.html

is this going to be any good, or should I look for branded rail?

John: Those will be perfectly fine any Hobby/semi pro machine but go with the 20mm because they make building easier. Both will easily handle any loads for wood router the size your looking at.
