This is the OE Y-Axis Slide (bearing block) as delivered with the 3018-PRO CNC, Desktop CNC Router. This Original Equipment slider features a pre-installed LM10UU 10mm ID linear bearing, for use on 10mm diameter linear rails. The Y-Axis Slide housing is manufactured in China of injection molded nylon. Like all of these OE nylon parts, some warping of the mounting tabs is expected and will not impact the performance of the product when installed on the machine. The bearings on this unit are press/friction fit.
For those looking to upgrade from the OE Y-Axis Slide, we offer an Improved Y-Axis Linear Slide Housing (bearing blocks), featuring mechanical bearing retention, Made in Colorado U.S.A. from PET-G FDM. Our Improved Y-axis Sliders can be purchased with both 10mm and 12mm ID, high precision linear bearings.
