DIY 39" Slider

This thing is real easy to make. Just tap a hole. Works good. Very fast set up and break down.

Looks very nice. What materials did you use?

Chris Swanberg January 28th, 2009 09:32 PM

Looks like a high end drawer slide, is it? More details please !

Christopher Witz January 28th, 2009 09:49 PM

VERY similar to the indiesliderpro! nice work.

Cole McDonald January 28th, 2009 10:54 PM

Perhaps a door guide?

Brian Luce January 28th, 2009 11:11 PM

I'll try and find the link where I got it, the track is very high end and not made for cameras or doors. Seems like something made for robotics or factory machinery.

Dang!! Just like the real thing Brian! Gusto ko ana pod!

ooh. xactly like the glidetrack. Am I right to say u have to remove the bowl to screw it to the track before mounting it? Will it flex at the ends?

If you google 'linear rails' you will find lots of companies that produce these type of rails they are made for engineering equipment.

Standard linear guide rails, miniature line guide rails, rail brake system

just an example

No, I just removved the head and bolted to tripod. Easy...it's vaguely a diy process, takes about five minutes and solid as a rock.

Looks good Brian! Any sample footage with your DIY slider?

BTW, saw this from the other forum to buy slider parts: igus® Inc: E-Chain Cable Carrier Systems®, iglide® plastic bearings, Chainflex® flexible cable, Drylin® linear guides and bearings, ReadyChain harnessed systems, igubal® spherical bearings, aluminum shafting

Best,

What was the cost?

Diego Waisman March 14th, 2009 10:39 AM

Wonderful.
I'd love to know where I can purchase one to give it a try...How big is your rail?
What model did you get?

Regards

The OP teased us then went silent..... arghhhhh.

Robin Davies-Rollinson March 22nd, 2009 02:31 PM

I've just put the same thing together from parts from Igus.com (European company, but there may be outlets in the US.)
This is what it's capable of:

It cost me about 100GBP - do the maths yourselves - I can't keep up with currency fluctuations these days!
