Buy Precision, Machined Aluminum Extrusions exclusively from VerySuperCool Tools online store.
We had our own proprietary die made and are working with a private manufacturer who CNC machines both sides of the aluminum extrusion before anodizing. We couldn’t be happier with the results! We are always trying to improve our products whenever possible and we managed to make the aluminum extrusions that work with our table saw fence system even better!

We designed our VerySuperCool Tools t-square to work with aluminum extrusions. Our machined aluminum extrusions are very stout, flat and straight as well as being a great value.
“I love the versatility that aluminum extrusion fences offer the craftsman. To be able to have multiple fences and unlimited attachments is a huge time saver.” ~ Allan Little
T-slotted aluminum extrusions attach quickly and easily to all three of our t-square designs, allowing for ultimate flexibility.
If you want to shop on your own for an extrusion to work with our VerySuperCool T-Square Fence system make sure
1) The extrusion has t-slotted channels to accept sliding t-nuts and bolts We recommend getting an extrusion with slots on all sides.
2) The extrusion width must be at least 1.5 inches or 40mm wide
The height and the length of the extrusion can vary, but the width is important because you do not want any interference between the plane of the table saw top and the fence.
