IGUS Aluminium shafts

I'm building a metric T-Slot-Tantillus at the moment and just recieved 8mm IGUS aluminium shafts. In reality they are 7.94-7.96 so they fit quite (they are a bit too loose) nicely in 608-bearings...

Looks nice, I am curious to see how those shafts work out. How much did they cost?

What is the length of your horizontal and vertical 2020 beams?

Have you gotten a chance to test fit the Igus plane bearings yet? I ask because those bearings/bushings are 16mm O.D. and the printed ones they will be replacing are 15mm O.D. Based on your shaft measurement I'm curious to know if, 1) you can compress the Igus bushings into the un-modified X-Y ends without breaking the printed part and 2) after compressing them appx. 1mm will you still have a compensated (not prescision) tolerance between the shaft and bushing recommended for a parallel shaft application by Igus.
