    T-Track _Best Place to purchase

    Starting to build an outfeed table and was thinking of adding quite a bit of T-Track. Where is the best online resource for T-Tracks? The ones I have found are pretty expensive. Also, in your opinions, would I be better off doing for of an MFT type top than adding so many T-Tracks? I saw a posting last week that linked to a chap in the UK that developed as system (jig) for cutting the holes but have misplaced the link. TIA all.

    Problem with Orange Aluminum in my experience is shipping. I was about to order 4 - 48" pieces, came to $34, but shipping to NJ was $28. If you spend $100 shipping is free.

    You may be thinking of the Parf Jig, developed by Peter Parfitt. I got mine from Lee Valley, but it seems they are out of stock. The only listing I could find is from TSO Products. https://tsoproducts.com/accessories/...ystem-mark-ii/

    I used this jig to make a "Paulk-Style" workbench, and it did the trick for me.

    Good Luck with whichever way you decide.

    You might want to take a look at Axminister for the Parf Jig. Strangely enough, the least expensive price I found was Axminister (in England). It probably had something to do with the exchange rate. Shipping was only $7.00. By the way, the jig is brilliant and works perfectly.

    So a more technical question, would you rather have an MFT type top with holes or a T-Track type top? This particular setup will be for a SawStop outfeed table/assembly table.
