TV Lift


I had plans to use a production linear actuator for the TV Lift, but its overall retracted height is just too long for this application. Instead I have decided to use CNC (3D Printer) parts to make a custom lift. Here are the plans and bleow is the parts list

I am hoping you will be able to help me out. Does anyone know where I can find these parts in Edmonton, AB?

Parts List:
- 2, 8mm lead screws at least 34” long, 900mm would give me a bit extra to custom cut down. I am not sure if a 1mm or 2mm pitch is ideal for my application, but I would take either.
- I am also looking for 2 nuts, pulleys, timing belt and pillow blocks.

The lead screws and pillow blocks are what I need right away, the rest could wait a few days. Thanks for your help,
