VerySuperCool Tools sells our own proprietary precision, heavy walled machined aluminum extrusions. Our extrusions are extruded through our own proprietary die, then CNC machined on all four faces, then inspected for flatness and squareness. After inspection they are clear anodized.
The 42″ is our most popular length and weighs less than 12 pounds.
While the 40x80mm extrusions you find locally or on Amazon will attach to all styles of our T-squares, you’ll find that the flatness and straightness is a hit or miss element. This is just the nature of the extrusion process. For example any extrusion with slots in the face normally has a crown across the face just a result of the manufacturing process of the nature of the die.
Listening & Improving: VerySuperCool Tools listens to our customers and tries to improve our products. We are very proud that we have managed to improve upon the aluminum extrusion used with our fence and our happy to make these available to our customers at such a small increase in price over the just extruded stock. Feel free to ask us questions on Facebook, or email or call us for more information!
Important Note: If you have one of your own aluminum extrusions, or purchased one from us before December 2014, your extrusion will still work perfectly fine. But you may still consider purchasing one of these machined extrusions and having a second fence for even more options in your shop.
