    Longer T-Nuts

    I find that it is difficult to even use the full diameter of the table and so I've made longer T-nuts

    The benefit is the support studs for the clamps can then be positioned outside the diameter of the table, gaining precious mm.

    Double T nuts are very handy for just that I've had some that I've made for years

    Great idea

    What timing, I've just started making my own set of T nuts for the first time. My mill table isn't very deep, so some extra long would be very handy to have around. Thank you very much for providing the inspiration
    It's not the destination but the journey you take to get there that matters.

    The thing to be careful about is over stressing the "T" slots very easy to do with extended "T" nuts
