Found these on ebay great price for a stepper + screw + linear guide.

It's unsupported rail though so Jazz probably won't approve. :(

Look like they are the stepper motors fitted into car door mirrors ?

Cant match that for price, but some years ago I bought (80 each-ouch) two lovely, high quality flat linear slides complete with ballscrews and stepper motors
with a view to using them as the Z slides on a twin head lightweight router to cut out the 1.6mm ply parts of my dollhouses. The travel is about 50mm and I think the ballscrews are about 6mm.

Any suggestions? To small for mooring weights and I'm too old for marital aids.

There are that cheap because he's not even bothering to send them out to those whoe have bought ...look at his feedback - it's peppered with negative feedback from buyers of this stepper.

One of the companies I deal with at work occasionally sends out a monthly email letter and it contains a link to old stock they have for sale. I noticed that it had some Nema 34 hybrid steppers on the list so I decided to ask for a quote for them. Near fell off my chair when I was told they were nearly 600 each.

It is only 14mm long though, so for the size that's a pretty robust rail.

I think the most impressive part of that advert is the macro function on his camera. Not sure mine would be able to capture a motor 8mm in diameter with such detail.
