    Linear Rail Guides from Aliexpress

    I am curious if anyone has experience ordering clone linear rails from aliexpress? One particular seller I looking at is CNA Mechanical Parts Store https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3296...ou_684111704.1 . I am not looking for superb quality, but a solution that is miles better than galvanized pipe and 308 bearings for the linear motion.

    Hi,
    those rails and cars are Hiwin look-a-likes, they even have the same part number as Hiwin, the Chinese are just shameless!

    Some of the Hiwin look-a-likes aren't to bad, but others are rubbish...even at the price they want for them.

    I suppose even crappy rails/cars are still going to be better than galv pipe and 308 bearings. If you want genuine good quality that won't
    break the bank get Hiwin...genuine Hiwin....the Chinese do everything possible to make you believe your getting the real thing...but aren't.
