Anyone use 3/8×3/4 6061 aluminum bar available on ebay to make miter bars before? Its quite a bit cheaper than the nice anodized ones that the woodwork stores sell. I’m getting ready to make a crosscut sled and might try some out.

I’ve used it before for jigs. For my crosscut, I went with wood runners because I wasn’t looking forward to a lifetime of metal on metal sound. Although I do like heavy metal;)
