Hi all

will the chroming wear off on round linear shafting? Otherwise what about using hydraulic rod shafting. It is chromed and a c45 material I believe. Any advice please.

thanks

You would not use chromed rod, round rail is usually case hardend for the purpose of linear rail. It just looks chromed.

Thanks I thought there was more to this than good looks.
