Limited, but results were VERY promising.

Cool, just ordered 1m, going to try it out.
I think this could be a very cool, and super silent "bearing", instead of the noisy LMxxUU.
Thanks for sharing :-)

Awesome! Since the ptfe tube will have been coiled, I recommend useing a thin coat of light machine oil, just to help the ptfe straighten out.

Great idea. is it working ok ? for how long is it holding up ?

Funds have been scarce. Project is halted. Hoping to get further next year. Please share any results you experience should you explore this.

Ah, ok :-) did you test with the tube installed?

Sorry for the long delay in response. Yes. I tested with the PTFE installed.
