Where to find this aluminum tubing???
« on: September 26, 2021, 04:56:50 PM »
My uncle gave me an CS mill contraption several months ago and I was wanting to add longer rails to it in order to mill some wide slabs.  Do any of you have suggestions of where to find the square tubing shown in the link below?

Most likely itís a standard extrusion and you should be able to match it up from a vendor online. It will be in the general category of t-slot extrusions. If you post the full dimensions Iíll see what I can find if you like.

The company you want to check first is 80/20, here is the link: https://8020.net/search/?q=shapes
 They have hundreds of shapes it may take you a while to find what you want, but they are a leader in these extrusions and likely supplied the OEM. Take your time and use their search features. They have a lot of 'stuff".

I apologize for the poor quality of the pic.  We may just do like Furby suggested in a pm, which was to just replace the aluminum with square tubing and make the fixture fit the CS bar we select.

Check out Misumi, probably everything you need there and they sell aluminum cut exactly to length, I thought prices were very reasonable. I bought stuff to mount a wixey gauge to my delta planer, anything there to do a project with.

What is the size of the square, the size of the t slot and the overall size? Im at work and dont have access to my mill frame, but a known dimension would allow for an easier search, even if the mounting hdwr had to be replaced, a person could find a size close enough, if not exact size, and make an order. I havent seen that exact style of extrusion used for the granberg mills, in the numerous sites iv looked at to build my router sled, but im sure any t slot extrusion of the same size should work.
