Would 40x80 be any good?

or maybe the 30X60 would be a better match ?

Cheers for the links Lee :) I need it more a 2 channel plate anchored to a wooden bed/block.
I've seen this (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aluminium-Extrusion-T-Slot-Plate-15180-15x180mm-Profile-CNC-Table-3D-Printer-/172411342537?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276) and I can rip it down the center then screw through the bottom channels to hold it in place.. when I've finished I'll put some pics on :)

No mate was something like 300 wide, I think the reason I didn't order any was the p&p and not getting a response as it was China new year, others that did get back to me on other Ali profiles just couldn't do anything on the shipping, it's just to heavie...

Thanks for the suggestions guys very much appreciated , I think I have a much cheaper solution for what I need , I going to make some out of MDF with a T slot cutter. there's no load on it so MDF will be fine. And its only a prototype .. proof of concept and I'll rethink a more robust solution. :)
