Thread: Best place to get ballscrews?
Probably one of the most frequent questions but just wondered wheres the best place to get ballscrews? I'm after 1605 with with end machining for small mill.
I have seen on here that Linearmotionbearins2008 on ebay is good and I have just got a really good quote, these are the ones
3 anti backlash ballscrew RM1605-400/600/800mm-C7 | eBay
Thanks in advance.
To date I have always got my ballscrews from Chai (Linearmotionbearins2008).
I have ordered quite a few things from Chai, most slip past customs without a problem.
but each time I ordered ballscrews over 600mm long, I got hit with tax and handling fees.

Chai now uses Fedex and I have been hit everytime recently, however he never discloses the correct price [ whistle ]John S -
Cheers, Chai quoted £70 inc shipping for 2 ball screws (350mm and 650mm) with end machining, even with vat it would be cheap. how much is the handling fee from Fed ex?
I presume the quality is good?
Fee is usually vat on the goods at our 20% plus Fedex rapeing fee of £10.
Quality is fine, never had a bad one but in all fairness i only buy blank screws as i do my own end machining because I don't use the commercial blocks.John S -
Godd experience, would buy again.
Wish I could do the machining, had a go a while back but not to successful. dont think my lathe and turning skills are up to it.
Cheers Mikey, always good to here positive experience.
