OpenBuild has a drawing with measurements on the page with the delrin wheels and I found a easier to link to copy of that here: http://openlab.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/V_wheel_kit_delrin_diag.jpg

Bart's drawing is here: http://www.buildlog.net/documents/b17021_rev_3.pdf

I think the OpenBuild wheels should work ok.

Thanks for finding Bart's diagram. I'd missed that.

The measurements do look very similar, especially in the important areas. It appears it would be a wider wheel overall, but both have the same diameter at the base of the V and same angle. Now I'm curious if there is any advantage to the double-V style.

I can't see any advantage for a MakerSlide or OpenRail application (but many times it seems I don't see too well :) ), but the dual V wheels will also work with the new OpenBuilds V-slot system. That looks pretty cool. http://openbuildspartstore.com/v-slot/ So if you are using both types of rails, you'd only need to buy one type of wheel.

Oh, that V-slot stuff is interesting. Thanks!

I wonder what's more prone to wheel deformation... the slot or the rail.
My instinct says slot, but i might be wrong.
