i’m sorry guys for asking a question each day it seems :( i hope these questions i toss out help the new folk who will surely ask the same as me.
yesterday it was softwood vs hardwood. some days before, sharpening stones.

today… T-track. I worked on the phone systems of a automobile machine shop (the guy has a $1million dollar car there… one of them race cars from the 1910’s). He used some T-track on drill presses and desks for various reasons. But it was not blue nor red, just aluminum color. He just wanted standard T-track, nothing fancy, at a great price. I asked him where he purchased it (hay… i’m always looking to make my wallet happier). Orange Aluminum. My ongoing wood working criteria is #1: Made In America, if possible. California seems pretty American to me :)

48” piece for $7.

I looked at other T-Track folks. Some go for $20 for a 48”, some $15.

Some differences: only 1 color aluminum. 1/4 hex bolt compared to others that use 3/8 bolt.
I’ll have to order a stick or two as i gotta make one of those LumberJocks cross cut sleds in the coming month or two.

  • PS: on a good note. my veritas stainless-steel marking gauge arrived today! ah.. a much needed tool
