Yes it can...

Which size rails do you have?

I have 9, 12, and 15mm MGN linear guides.  Their only redeeming quality is their price :)  I have a set of STAF guides on the X axis of my rose engine.  They're made in Taiwan and are equal to or better than Hiwin guides.

These rails and blocks aren't too bad. I have definitely seen worse.

I ended up buying some Super Lube Silicone Lubricating Grease to use. I needed it anyway for some Nerf blasters.



Has good recommendations for that...

What size bearings did you order for the 15mm blocks?

This has been on hold for a little bit.

I ended up order some stronger stepper motors, a better PSU and some MISUMI t-slot plate for a better table.

Now... I wait.
