    Hello CNCers,

    I've just had this land in my lap.. and given the cursory comment of... can you find me some of this..

    clearly, I know nothing about it...

    It's got no makers marks or part numbers on it...

    it's lovely and ground on all the working surfaces..

    I've had a good day's worth of looking on the internet.. and I'm 50/50 on does this has a truck that fits it.. or is it more like a sideway and gib strip setup ..

    oh and I've no idea if it might use rollers.. (I'd think so with the shape of the surfaces) but finding something in a catalogue is not proving very easy...

    so the real hope with asking the hive mind is that someone recognises it... and goes that's a Matusumi XYZ rail ... i use it all the time..

    anyway, thanks in advance..


    oh, and if I find out.. I'll put it up... :-)

    I've no idea of the manufacturer but I can tell you it uses linear ROLLER carriages rather than the more common ball bearings type carriages so it's most likely from a high-end machine and most likely a Milling machine if it's a short length.

    But to be honest I think you are looking for a needle in a haystack without any markings.?
    -use common sense, if you lack it, there is no software to help that.

    so here are some ...

    hope this gives you some idea..

    I've gone back to the customer and asked for a bit more info on what the truck / moving element looks like, as I'm able to find lots of things that measured at 35mm but 36mm seems a strange one..

    anyway thanks for anyone who looks at this..

    it might be that i get the grinder fired up and some steel cooking in the oven ..
