    Is it possible to get a custom cut of the Aluminium Extrusion and V-slot Rails of 10 feet, instead of the standard 2000mm offered? I want to build a CNC that can cut the sides of a tear drop camper.

    Vslot is only offered in 1000mm and 1500mm lengths

    Thankyou for the quick response. Is the openrail also limited to 2000mm' and if its so, could I use two v- slot or open rail to acquire the desired length. Would the combined parts cause a bump in the movement of the wheels as they travel across the gap.

    You need to look in their parts store. It shows you right On the product page what lengths their extrusions come in.

    You could always try a double tee-nut or a plate to make the connections, but like you said you would need to work on it get it smooth.
