So I just finished making my new T-slot bed,

I now realise that I don't have any T-nuts thus making my CNC machine useless! :P

anyone around in cardiff this evening and fancy helping me make some? cut out the shape at least! :p

Useless without pictures :emmersed:

Nowhere near Cardiff, but I can make you some if you want. Dimensions / drawing?

it's 10mm gap, 20mm under gap and the thickness of the bars is 10mm. so pretty simple.

Can't you use standard square nuts?

Screwfix sell Cross dowels for a few quid for 50. They are 10mm dia and 14 to 25 mm long with an M6 threaded hole. They may be some use a the basis of a t-nut, or evem just use them neat if your bed has the right dimensions.
