    Hi all -
    I am new to openbuilds and I'd rather not spend the money on parts to realize it wouldn't work so am looking for some help with this.

    I am trying to attach a Solid V wheel to a 20mm v-slot (shown below). The idea is the wheel would ride on a v-slot extrusion (not pictured below) while attached to another v-slot (which would be a platform).

    I am trying to conceptualize this with a tee nut, low profile m5 screw, solid wheel, and some type of spacer. It doesn't look like spacers are a good solution to fitting into a v-slot.
