    who to buy linear rail/bearings from

    Been looking all over this site to figure out who is the best for the bang seller to buy profile linear rail and bearings from. I have seen a lot of good/bad remarks about linearmotionbearings(Ebay Seller).
    I have found very little information about Joomen(Amazon seller). Anaheim automation is a lot more expensive but I like the idea of a US based seller.
    So, what do you think. what have your experiences(good and bad) been when buying profile rails and bearings?
    Thanks

    Are you talking about their Current Production Hiwin SQUARE-RAIL-TYPE Linear Rail Products or
    Older Style Hiwin AG and LG Products or
    something in the LM76 line?

    I would not mind used if they are in good shape, are reasonably priced and have matching bearing blocks.
    What do you have?

    Yes excellent shape matching bearings. I can send pics later but they are black with the apc coating and I also have some uncoated ones but they are not in as good shape as the coated ones. They are just shy of 1500 mm. I believe they are a matching set as well. I will sell the set of 2 for $400 plus shipping.

    To be honest I think 35 mm is a bit big for my application.
    Thanks

    That is $600-$700 just for this axis.
    I gotta find a cheaper solution without sacrificing to much.

    Well maybe not so much
    2 x 2800 mm of 20 mm rail is $400
    4 x sq normal preload bearings at $31.35 is $125
    so $525 plus shipping.
