  3. Setting up these rails is insanely hard work!! I wish I had a straight edge the length of my rails... I managed to get one pretty much bang on but the more cap screws I add, the harder it is to keep the rail exactly straight... Time to take a break!

  4. Some photos

  5. Evening guys - I have just finished mounting my rails - whoop - and have to say that is one long and screwy task!! I have attached a video of the various sounds of the bearings moving up and down depending on what they are mounted to as the hollow shs makes them sound much more noisy than on the aluminium. At least I hope that's what it is?! I've mounted these things pretty straight, parallel and level!

    Joe Stop panicking they sound fine see what they are like when you put the gantry on
    ..Clive

  7. Thanks Clive! It's just taken such a bloody long time I don't want to be doing it again! They sound about the same with the gantry on although the next task is to get that all squared up.... I'm sure it's fine - when I give the gantry a shove it keeps going for a while before it stops which I take to be a good sign.

    These carriages also seem slightly rough when moving unloaded - try moving them with your body weight on them. Under load they become much smoother.

    Perfectly normal Joe that's the preload your hearing/feeling. When greased and under load they will sound different again and work great.
