    Here you go one designed just for cutting wood and light aluminium work.

    Just starting to collect all the essential bits (linear bearings etc). I am just going around (again) if it's more economic to get the hgr20 rails in the uk. I was going to get the rails from " cnc4you" but have questioned if there hgr20 rails are Hiwin, or a patent part, still waiting an answer. Does anyone know if they are, and if not a uk stockist I can get a quote off.

    btw - just getting my head around importing all the standard parts into NX, so I can post my machine design, for your critic.

    I bought some rail and carriages from CNC4YOU a year or two back. Can't be definitive about the rails as I can't see any markings on them but the HGH20 carriages are clearly marked Hiwin.

    Got a response back from cnc4you, they are an equilivant rail. The million dollar question is are they going to be as good as hiwin ones? Experience anyone?

    I think they will be more than good enough for a hobby build I would doubt that you could tell the difference.

    Have you tried Fred at BST because I doubt you'll buy them cheaper in UK or even get close on price and they are genuine Hi-win.

    Got a quote back from Fred. I have also got a quote from "transmission CNC" for the same which significantly less - anyone used them, seem to be a medium preload fit which I am not sure if that's an issue or not.

    Hi
    Could you post a link for transmission CNC
    I have been looking for Hiwin rails and do not find Fred to be the cheapest supplier. are the rails from transmission CNC etched Hiwin.
