Welcome to Makerslide South Africa (part of the Fatbob Technologies group). All over the world hobbyist are turning to makerslide extrusions to solve their linear motion needs. Makerslide has always been an expensive option for South Africans with an expensive product needing import (shipment and customs duties)
Well, we at FatBob decided to change that, now we are the proud owners of the only die for makerslide manufacture on the African continent enabling us to make Makerslides available In Gauteng (and yes - we'll ship anywhere country wide) Our price per meter is about half of what you'll pay for imports (before you even paid for shipment or customs)
We opened shop November 2015 and have been busy ever since.
