For linear bearings I found these folks have heavy duty ball bearing 
drawer runners that I used in my foam cutter, enclosing the runners in 
aluminium angle helps to keep everything running smoothly. I think I 
paid about $22.50NZ for each 90mm slide: http://www.hafele.com/nz/
I needed slightly more travel so adjusted the endstop mechanism a little.
I really should get around to building the electronics to get it moving :-)
