    Help again!!!

    I own a Record BS300E band saw. I am at present making some jigs to assist with cutting timber for pens and segment bowls.
    I am looking for to purchase some bar to make a slide to allow my jig to accurately slide across the saw table.
    It seems to be an odd size slot that record use.
    I have tried using square section timber with a screw in each end to allow me to expand the timber for a tighter fit. But i am not very happy with that.
    Does anyone know where i can purchase T section extruded bar to fit a record bandsaw table.
    Kind Regards
    Dave Williams

    Hello David, I use timber runners, they are tight enough and I wax them. Cheaper option.
    Kind regards John.
