    Simple question, whatís the name of the aluminium section used on this cnc bed.
    I have a similar CNC but itís a solid bed and I want to put this type of section on it to easily clamp my work. The thinner the section I can get the better so I have more Z hight.
    I only really want 2 strips of it as I would like to leave the centre of the work for full cut outs. Also while you are here what bolts / blocks etc do I need to go through my bed and hold down the bars on top of it? Oh and if you know a good UK supplier that would be handy :)


    Thanks as always.
