Great thread.
I'm researching Youtube to find out how to build a home made router table and will need some suitable t-track.
Thanks everyone for the great information.

Reiterate an earlier post. I only need about 750mm so if anyone gets more than they need and is prepared to sell me a piece, I'd be really grateful.

Although Axminster do charge a premium for a lot of stuff that can be found cheaper elsewhere, I do like their own brand orange T track with the dovetail outer profile. Rout the dovetail into your tabletop, drive the T track in from the end getting everything flush and tight, and the screws through the back of the track have to do far less work against pull out.

This one looks good value (3 x 800mm for £23)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/800mm-31-5-T ... 2603230873

The one on Rutlands measures the internal size in imperial as 3/4" (19.05mm) where as that one says it's 19.3mm. So I think stuff made for 3/4" is going to be a bit sloppy unless it has fine adjustment
