Timber slabbibg linear rails

I have seen several youtube videos of people using linear rails to build a slabbing jigs for flattening boards. I have a traditional one made with wood and using Infinity mega dado bit.

Has any one on the forum built one using linear rails. I was looking at Amazon 20 mm rails as a source. Any suggestions on other sources.

Woodpeckers has a new slabbbing sled. Looks nicely built but expensive as all Woodpecker products are.

I get marketing emails from woodpeckers. For me they are way overpriced. I am looking at 2020, 2040 and other extruded type rails with v- wheels.

I stumbled upon this the other day, looking for something else.

Not cheaper than Woodpeck though…

As for extrusion sources:

Woodhaven has a similar one for about the same price. I think I can do better with price by building it myself. After all I have a Shapeoko to cut my mounting plate. The linear rails are not too expensive but I want one that is 2500MM long. The 2020 and 2040 looks promising and the cost is lower than the linear rails. Still studying. I am a cheapskate at heart and a ready made one is easy but I am way to cheap to spend $1100 for the Woodpeckers and even $600.00 for the Woodhaven and/or the Framing Tech models. It always takes me some time to spend money. I am not an impulse buyer and that is a good thing in my opinion.
