Cart Guide (CGUIDE-10)


  1. If there is too much friction between the cart and the Cart Guide, check that the thin plastic film has been removed from both large surfaces of the Cart Guide. Leaving the protective film on the Cart Guide can impede the cart’s motion.
  2. Be sure the anti-roll peg is removed from the cart when using the Cart Guide.
  3. If over time the edges of the Cart Guide become rough or ragged, the edges can be smoothed or deburred by gentle application of sandpaper. If the edges of a brand-new Cart Guide are quite rough or ragged, please contact Vernier technical support.
