What size hex bolt are you using with the original version of this? I tried M5 (too small) and M6 (too big) and the blue big box store didnt have anything small enough. Also what knob are you using? Thanks

1/4" bolt. You can change the bolt size in customizer.

The know is a 1/4" knob that I picked up in a junk store. I have no idea what brand or part it is.

I've used this custom knob generator many times: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:664192

Parameterized Star Knob for tool

Thanks for posting this - it saved me a bit of time..! I'm switching my CNC machine's wastboard to these. How are they holding up?

I made these because I wanted to see test the difference in holding power among routered t-track, t-track extrusion, and dovetails. I haven't actually gotten around to cutting any more than test dovetails, but I've liked what I've seen so far. It's better than t-track cut with a router and way cheaper than extruded t-track. Eventually I'm making a new bench with dovetails and dog holes in butcher block.
