    Good morning everyone,
    I am new to building and I am planning a large Laser cut table. Right now I need this table to be 5 ft by 6 foot. The first question I have is on the linear rails can put multiple together? The largest I see is 1500 MM. What would I use to connect them.

    Thanks everyone Many questions and comments to come as I get the parts to make this Laser Cut table.

    Hello Shannon,

    Start with something easy, small!, later on you can make a larger one with most of the components. V-Slot is relatively cheap and so are the belts.

    Thanks for the reply. I have a friend that has. Build 3D printers and he is finishing up his laser cut table as we speak. I have a need for a larger table and he is starting the design in cad. He has not built a table this large so we will both have questions in his to make the larger table. This project will take us a year we believe so not in a hurry.

    Thanks
