Rails for Kossel Mini
December 05, 2018 11:10AM
HI Follks,
I'm slowly upgrading bits of my Kossel Mini and am thinking about moving to linear rails as the truck roller wheels I have had up to now don't seem to get on very well with my new 2020 extrusions.

So, what's the current state of play regarding linear rails?

Are the robotdigg cheap options any good?

What represents good value for money these days in your opinion?

All info welcome smiling smiley

Cheers,
Robin.

If you don't want to gamble on the quality of mgn rails from China, buy Hiwin, Staf, or US made.

I've had good experience with the Robotdigg rails.

Me too. I've upgraded their bearings with "German quality" balls and they run supersmooth now in my Kossel XL.
But in several other cases I use them 'as_is' and was never dissapointed.

Thanks for the info!

I've gone with a set of robotdigg stainless.

Cheers,
Robin.
