Does anybody have a solution for creating linear motion without using steel parts? I intend to place a vertically sliding rail at the front of my claw, and therefore cannot afford to have the weight of the steel linear slides on my claw. I have seen one solution online, in the form of 99371A Dreadnought’s In The Zone cascade lift, but I don’t currently have the means to cut my own spacers. I have been experimenting with cutting through all the middle holes in aluminum c-channels and having a bearing flat “ride” along the track created. The results were promising, but the method was far too time consuming, involving cutting the channel with a rotary tool, and lots of filing with needle files.
Thanks in advance,
