POM/UHMW Sliders

I think this could be the future of V wheels, having sliding blocks seem to give much greater stiffness and are more resistant to jamming from chips but they need much more callibration to work well…

I know it’s speculation, but I am pretty sure I have seen some on a few Shapeoko’s on Instagram :wink:

I think I might be able to help here :slight_smile:

The Beaver HDZ uses linear sliders and guides.

With the above design it looks very interesting, however note the need of a commercial cnc to build it…
