    I printed my own, using a design by PCFlyer on thingiverse. They’re designed to use regular 1/4-20 carriage bolts, which are cheap and easy to get, at least here in the states. Details are in this thread: http://www.vicious1.com/forum/topic/20×30-inch-build/.

    They work great, but I think I will eventually swap out my t-slots for threaded inserts.

    Using printed T-slot, but I’m upgrading to some aluminum slot I found online.

    What I’ve decided on is three channels running in the Y-axis on my 20×20″ spoil board, deep enough to withstand one or two resurfacings. Left and right of the spoiler I’ll place Y-direction tracks outside of the cutting area, and the same above and below in the X-direction, to hold the pieces that will be done in multiple cuts or are too large to clamp in the cutting area safely.

    Good luck!

    I just drilled 1 1/2″ holes in my spoil board and use clamps.

    I considered printing t track and using coach bolts, but finally settled on threaded inserts in a spill board, with a replaceable waste board on top, that can be resurfaced a couple of times then thrown away and replaced cheaply.
