After seing a few videos shot using an indie slider I decided I wanted one. Rather than run up the credit card, my father bought the main parts from igus.co.uk, and made his own indie slider!
The part numbers for the indieslider are:
WS-16-60 Drylin 'W' rail 1000mm
WW-16-60-10 Drylin 'W' carriage
You might need to drill and tap a hole or two depending on your requirements.

Then bolt your tripod head to the carriage, put a nut and bolt either end of the rail to stop the carriage flying off. We attached the rail to a tripod and that's about it.
If you download the orginal mp4 file you'll notice that the video is a lot smoother. If we had of turned off the picture stabilizer it might of been smoother still.
Filmed on a Sony EX1, and 36" indie slider track system, and edited in Edius 5.
