I am looking for a 80/20 20mm rail for the Mini rail buttons. 36" would be great.
Thanks

Shipping isn't cheap but they'll have it to you next day.

$0.16 per inch. Also check Ebay. From time to time they discount stuff there.

I have found some but like said paying $20 to ship a $9 item is crazy. I did order a V slot 20mm rail. Very cheap. Not sure if it will work but I will let you all know if it works. How long of t-slot do most of you use?

20x20mmx1830mm through Amazon cost me under $30 for purchase and delivery shipped from 80/20 in May of this year.

Arrived two weeks after ordering. Perfectly straight.

I did manage to find a 80/20 20mm × 1220mm rail on Amazon for $24.95 shipped. I bit the bullet paid more for the shipping than the item.

The rail at McMaster was just over $10. Would have shipped from the Chicago depot via UPS so probably about $10 to anywhere within 100 miles. Free shipping if you pick it up from will-call.

If the rail is over 30" long the shipping price goes up almost double. I check McMaster I won't get shipping for $10

I've got a piece of this in the shed. I'll check length in the morning and get back to you...

Alright, here's what I have. I was told this is a "Micro-Rail", whatever that means. See dimensions in the photos. Length is 36.5" long. SamIMG_0016.JPGIMG_0017.JPG

Zoro (www.zoro.com) was cheap and the shipping was fast and extremely cheap when I was ordering rails.

Fortunately for me, I live near a Grainger store and am able to place an order for pickup at the store.

They still charge for shipping the rail from the warehouse to the store. Haven’t placed the order for a 8’ long rail yet so I don’t know how much for the S/H.

My Mini-Rail came from Amazon as did my two Micro rails (it was a two for the price of one thing).

Micro rails use “Micro buttons” while Mini Rails use ”Mini Buttons” according to Railbuttons.com.
