Constructed camera slider from hardware store parts for ~ $50

I used a small, c. 1/2″ thick piece of wood as a platform for a 3/8″ bolt and washer to anchor the Acratech ball head and drilled 4 corner holes for attachment of plastic -wheeled cabinet fixtures. These were spaced to match the rails on an aluminum level, which has end holes suitable to placement on tripods to elevate the slider if needed.

The total cost except for the ball head was about $50. My initial tests indicate that it will function beautifully and quietly to allow about 3 feet of camera movement, whether for sliding or trucking (lateral or front-back).
