    Hi Nicola,

    Sorry, but that OD would be too small for both the 23.5mm and the 25.0mm builds.

    So to answer your question the minimum would be 23.5mm OD.

    Which country are you from Nicola? Maybe there are others here with the correct size tube
    on here that could help you source your rails!

    Cheers
    Greg.

    Hi Greg,
    Thanks for your answer. I’m from Italy.
    I’ve found only plumbing pipes of such dimension (at Brico centers), but I’ve read in the forum that they are not ideal for building the cnc.
    Are there others from (north) Italy?
    thanks
    Nicola

    For others living in Italy: I found 25mm x 3m galvanized steel pipes at “Sacchi Elettroforniture” for about 6 €
    regards

    Hi all.
    Just to add an information for others living in Italy, I’ve built my mpcnc using 25mm x 2mm pipes from “Comet”.
