This is a basic MakerSlide slider. It consists of the MakerSlide rail, a standard MakerSlide carriage plate, and four V-wheels with all the hardware (including the eccentric spacers).
It is designed to install with the eccentric spacers on the opposite side of the plate as the V-wheels; to install them on the same side, you also need two 6.35mm spacers for the fixed wheels, which you can purchase separately from our store.
The kit can be used as a manual camera slider, or as a starting point for a number of MakerSlide projects.
Please note that the image shows a motorized camera slider. The motor, motor bracket, belt pulley, belt idlers, belt and belt anchors are not included in this version.
If used as a camera slider, you need a way to attach the camera to the moving carriage plate, and the MakerSlide to some form of support (e.g. two tripods). We carry both 1/4" and 3/8" screws that can be used to attach a camera, a quick-release mechanism, or a ball head to the plate. We don't have a ready-made means of attaching the MakerSlide to the tripods, but we're working on a mounting plate with a 1/4" threaded hole. It will be available as a separate item. In the meantime, as a simple solution for attaching a quick-release plate to MakerSlide, you can remove the 1/4" screw and replace it with a M5 screw and a T-slot insertion nut.
