Get aluminum v groove rail for your cnc applications for the lowest price ever offered! I have customers that have made everything from CNC machines to high end drawers using my  v groove rails. I'm letting you get in on the next batch and rewarding you with the lowest priced cnc rail ever offered. Unlike other variations on this product that have been on kickstarter I have already been doing this for years. This means NO DELAYS, no nonsense, and truly LOW COST.

Don't know what you want to build? Get the mill finish in 6 FT lengths and put it in a corner that is visible to you. All of this raw inventor material staring at you will lead you to BUILD A PROTOTYPE of something. Cuts simply with a bandsaw. OR DELAY YOUR ORDER TILL ANY DATE IN THE NEXT YEAR AND I'LL CUT IT TO SIZE FOR YOU.

My hard coat anodized rail has been put through the riggers the last 4 months. I have put 200lbs on them for 500 passes a day. Not only do they have zero wear on them, i have not needed to replace a wheel either. Hard coat equals real deal applications. I do it right, 3 feet is the longest I can do and mantain the best possible coat. These butt together seamlessly. 

Attach the rail to your tube, drill a hole through the rail and tube, (size 7/64) then insert a self tapping screw (size #6) and presto it's attached. My rails butt together seamlessly to handle any length application you need. Mill finish is available in any lengths from 2 feet to 6 feet. The hardcoat anodized type 3 rails are available in 3 foot lengths. (butt them together for longer applications). I make the hard coat pieces in 3 ft lengths because anything longer would be inferior. We need to put a charge through them and 3 ft is the max length without sacrificing any hardness or quality.

Note- You can not run steel wheels on any aluminum track even if it is hard coat anodized for very long. I don't care what anyone has told you hardened steel wheels will eventually wear down the best of hard coat anodized jobs. Delrin wheels are strong and quiet and can handle a great many applications.

The anodizer may delay getting my order completed in fast enough. Causing possible delay of a few days. I will be vigilant in creating a timeline to let everyone know where we are.
