Dino - I must ask, why is the recessed area on your extrusions just a little to narrow to fit a 1/2" stick on rule?

Curious about this myself. I'm still awaiting a roll of EZ-ready stick-on rule I ordered years ago.

Most likely avoiding retooling fees, but I would think the originals would have needed replacing by now. Then again, I don't know what I'm talking about.

Mike, It was taken off for the tapes at hand...mistake,
Not all tapes are exact and not all extruders are perfect...
my fault...trying to fix it with rigid vinyl printed strips for all extrusions.
At a price that we can all effort.

Same time with the ez-Pyramids and our very own knobs to be able

The aluminum extrusions are in 22-25 weeks delay...made in USA.
Wondering the effects of the new import taxes and the backlog of the parts
made in USA. We saw increases in few ez parts from US suppliers
due to import duties.. good luck to the small factories...

Mike,
I was thinking the same thing when I saw Dino was modifying dies and ordering new dies. I get to page three and there's your post! It seems like a really EZ fix. If the slot is made wider(say 9/16ths or even 5/8ths) it would take away any issues with different widths of rulers. Even if its to wide, wouldn't that be better than too narrow. This would also save on aluminum in the extruding process and who knows it might even allow for a price reduction on the tracks!

hi.
Waiting for the new brackets. ( 10-12 days)
We have to do the testing and I hope to start production asap.

The Aluminum import taxes created a back-log in the supply line and now
we have to wait 24 weeks for any extrusion.
The US extruders are very busy and our US extruder is keep pushing back the lead times asking for 50% extra to speed-up our orders.

The new laws that I'm supportive of them...is a nightmare.

I have a thought Dino. Have you considered extrusions in materials other than aluminum? Perhaps WPC (Wood plastic composites) I know there are a few of the WPC extruders already making 80/20 stuff.

As you know, I have been experimenting with some of the decking that I have slotted to create my own t-slotting using the rectangular voids. I have considered picking up some of the Calibamboo with the round voids. I am not suggesting using this, but actually having the EZ extrusions made using the material they make the decking out of. It seems pretty strong, perhaps not as strong as Aluminum, but I don't think there are any tarrifs on it And, some of the Calibamboo brand stuff is made from all kinds of recycled materials so it is good for the planet.

Trying to think outside the box. Right.. If nothing else, it is worth a phone call or two, or get a free sample and bang on it with a hammer or run it over with a truck and such.

The calibamboo stuff:
