Mr. Piickles,
One plate is for left to right movements, the other is for front to back movements.

Rense, I have this one - 4-Way Macro Focusing Rail Slider for DSLR Camera with Two 6" Rails | Focusing Rail | Macro Equipment | Lens & Accessories | Linkdelight.com

I have had it for about two years. The particular copy that I have is well made and works very well. I find the focus smooth and easy to use. HTH.

I use the Velbon Super mag slider to focus stack
