Has there ever been any discussions on using extruded aluminum t slot to replace the original base? I’m not a huge fan of the MDF base, and feel aluminum extrusions would be much more rigid and reliable.
Here is what I would like to ask the community:
Could you use enough pieces of say 30mmX180mmX974mm bolt 3 of them to the original mounting locations, and connect the non bolted extrusions to the 3 that are mounted with t slot connectors? You could easily attach spoil board material to the top of the extrusions and utilize all the tslot for clamping options at the least.
Look forward to hearing everyones thoughts!
