View Full Version : aluminium profile for cutting bed of router

19-10-2013, 08:22 PM
Hi I am looking to upgrade my cnc router to an aluminium cutting bed with tee slots.
I have seen lots of machines which have this sort of cutting bed, made up of 3 or 4 widths across the bed depending on the width of the machine, but it is not easy to find a suitable source in the UK.
I have tried the bosch agents but I would need to buy a 5600mm length minimum, their profile is 18mm x 160mm wide or 22mm x 160mm wide so Iwould need 3 off 1 metre lengths
The bed of my machine is 480 x 1000mm long I could fit up to 600mm wide if need be, any suggestions?

KJN (http://aluminium-profile.co.uk) cut their profile to whatever size you want and deliver it via courier. I dunno if they have the size you want but, having used them in the past, I can say their service is good. :thumsup:
