Knobs, nuts and T-trac . Although they are out of stock at present even with shipping it represents good value although the kit was half price during January. Or maybe just the knob kit.
Shipping is usually about 11 days and it's unlikely you'll get caught for duty as it's a light poster tube type of parcel. Maybe even get the router cutter there too.

Like this https://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/forums/view ... 93&start=0
I'm sure the bigger component suppliers like Woodfit and Components Direct stock them too.

Try some of the engineering merchants. There are several manufacturers of knobs and handles in the UK, hell I've even made Tufnol T-nuts for one of these outfits (in batches of hundreds, though). At the end of the day a T-nut can be machined from beech with a T-nut stuffed into it and so can a handle. Surely at least one of the engineers on here should know someone.Neomorph":mhxoaavw said:I know what you mean... hours spent scouring the web for stuff to make up your own jigs has almost done my head in. There is one Canadian site which show pretty much what I'm looking for http://www.nicks.ca/jigparts.html but I can't seem to find anywhere on this side of the pond that does something similar.

Hell, just look at this comparison:-
Search for T-Track in the states and you get loads of router table stuff. \/
Search for T-Track in the UK and you get... car and bike accesories ](*,)
Search for "Jig parts" in the states and you get "Jig part". \/
Search for "Jig parts" in the UK and you get "THERMAL NOISE EXPERIMENT PROGRESS UPDATE DEC-JAN" :shock: Now wtf has that got to do with Jigs is anyones guess!
There has got to be some sot of language barrier here. Perhaps if I win the lottery I'll go visit the states and bring a load of jig parts home and sell them to you guys. 8)
