With the rail still on the absorbent paper towels, carefully and slowly move the carriage from one end of the rail to the other.

You want to ensure the carriage is smooth over the entire travel length. Small changes in resistance are normal, but the carriage becoming much harder to push, or binding completely are not.

Repeat the previous test whilst applying a small amount of force downwards on the carriage. You will likely find the carriage travels more smoothly when doing so, this is normal.

If the carriage moves freely from end to end, you are ready to proceed with installation onto your machine.

If it does not move freely, refer to the Linear Rail Troubleshooting Guide.
