Good rods

I bought a cheap and cheerful Malyan M150 and the challenge to slowly replace parts to turn it into happy little workhorse has been entertaining.

One of the earliest things that got changed were the linear bearings (along with pulleys which come from the factory with rusty balls).

Originally, I changed the linear bearings to Igus Drylin ones but then found that when tightening the bed, the twist on the carrier plate would cause a significant binding although the result was a silent carriage.

I then bought some Misumi bearings which research had suggested are highly rated. Popped those on and the bed binding had gone but the travel was still very noisy.

Next to be changed were the smooth rods. These were the ones I chose and i'm very happy with the result.

The bed travel is as silent in operation as with the Igus Drylin bearings but without the bearing drag.

Good rods based upon my small experience!
