MicroWheel Stage 2 Linear Slider Carriage
The MicroWheel Stage 2 combines 6 MicroWheels, 1 RigPlate and 1 RigAxel to make a captive rail linear slider. The captive carriage configuration makes your camera much more secure by locking it onto the rails. This setup also allows you to position the carriage/rails at any angle; just the trick for vertical or slanted moves. This kit offers a similar captive rail option to the MicroWheel Stage 3 carriage at a lower price but is not as suitable for handling vertical and angled movement.
RigWheels linear slider kits and parts are designed for easy expansion and and multifunction use. This linear slider kit allows you to operate on smooth flat surfaces (such as a counter top or glass table) as well as on pipe as shown below. MicroWheel camera dolly wheels will run on any smooth pipe with an outside diameter between 1″ & 2″.
In addition to the variety of styles of movement you can achieve with this kit, you always have the ability to increase functionality by adding different parts. For example, you can add 1 more RigAxel and 4 inline wheels to configure our RigSkate.
RigWheels are mounted to the RigPlate with common 5/16″ OR 8mm bolts. As often as possible, common parts and hardware are used in our products to give customers the ability to modify and come up with different configurations.
This linear slider travels extremely well. With the RigWheels removed, the flat 5/16″ thick RigPlates can fit in many common places like a laptop pocket. 4 RigWheels packed into their included travel bag are about the size of a portable hard drive.
Aluminum and steel pipe/tube are recommended for suspended camera slider applications like this.
