    If it's for a light load, V-slot rail and wheels might do the job-

      I think I'll go with Larry's suggestion, 2 12m rails...I like the idea of being able to tighten it up. I appreciate the linear motion suggestions, but this is a case of it either be something super cheap on amazon.ca (limited selection) or I make something. A lot of the other stuff just gets too expensive by the time I get it here
      in Toronto Ontario - where are you?
