    I don't think you can put THK and reasonable price in the same sentence unless you include eBay.

    Jonathan I understand these are not going to be cheap but I need to find a supplier that will respond to my emails and give me a quote.

    are you just looking for the rails ? or rails and bearings?

    i managed to get 4 NSK LH20 bearings new for 16 but couldnt for the life of me find any matching rail :(

    its a nightmare trying to get good rails at a reasonable price, ebay and a shitload of patience is your only real option unless your loaded

    i managed to get new THK-HSR25's (bearings and rails) off ebay for my X and Y for about 400

    THK-HSR20's used off ebay 110 for my Z (ebay, Istanbul)

    its worth doing an international search on ebay (it felt a tad risky buying from Istanbul but it all ended well)

    Hi
    are you still looking for THK linear components?
    if so, send me the type and length of rails you require I will get you a quote from my home country if you want.

    Other manufacturers are dimensionally compatible to THK, so does it have to be theirs?

    That's my tactic :) Still not found the two 2100mm (ish) rails I need for my X-axis.

    I am getting Hiwin carriages and rails:
    1000mm of HGR-R-H rail for 53 pounds
    HGW25HCZOH for 47 pounds :)

    are these prices reasonable?

    Price for the blocks is about normal:

    At the same place 1m of rail is 65+vat. Where did you get those prices?
