    Hi all, I am designing a structure and need help with the number of mini-wheels and distance between them, since I've never used V-Slots. The distance between the first wheel and the latter would be 25cm. Must hold at most 20 to 25 kgs. Would it be possible?

    Thanks!

    That's a hard question to answer based on the way you have them mounted. If they were being screwed directly into plates I'd say 1.5 to 2 kgs per wheel would be a reliable number but I'm not sure how well the extrusion flanges will handle the prying load.
