I've got a Makita Tablesaw and I want to get some aluminum T-slot bar/T-bar so I can make some custom sleds.

 

Does anybody know where I can buy this. I've found it on Amazon but I would like to source it locally in the Wellington region.

 

Thanks in advance.

Carbatec. $38 plus shipping. By the time you get it here from amazon including shipping it works out cheaper.

 

 

 

Bought one the other day works fine for my cross cut jig

Looking closer at the options, may be getting UHMW Polycarbonate strips are is a better option.
