If you are a filmmaker you need a slider. My favorite is the SliderPLUS by Edelkrone. It is small, smooth and perfect to travel with it.
Months ago I watched a video by Doc Hutch filmed with a DIY Edelkrone Slider maked in few hours and I thought it was an amazing DIY project, but there was not enough information to make one.
Now Doc Hutch shares other new video tutorial with more instructions...
but not much.
Alright guys I have tracked down the company that sells these types of linear slides. lm76.com/speed_rail_osg.htm
Use the OSG25 and remove the oil wipers or you will have a mess.
Let me know if you guys would like for me to take the slider apart and put it together step by step on another video. Leave a comment on my vimeo if you guys would be interested.
This is follow up to my other DIY Edelkrone Style Slider video. I do not know the name or brand of the material and the hardware store I bought it from closed down. Take what you see and use your imagination and I am sure you will all figure out something that works. - saids Doc Hutch on Vimeo

If finally you want to make one, on this blog (teak70.blogspot.com ) you can see images of original Edelkrone SliderPLUS from different angles to understand how it was built.
In this other video Alan Currall shares other version of a DIY Edelkrone Slider, more simple but perfect to understand how it works.
