So I am planning on purchasing threaded inserts for my wasteboard. (Not sure yet if I will go all inserts or combo t-rack. - Apparently his is quite the discussion on the Onefinity Forum)
Anyways any good sources with quick shipping?
I was considering McMaster because i have had great luck with there heat set inserts and bad luck with random threaded products off Amazon. (McMaster-Carr Qty. 100 for $13.84) Only problem is they come in four different lengths. is .486" (33/64) too long?
I’ve used these before without any issue. Some of them stripped, so a little CA or wood glue while installing will fix them in position. I used them in combination with these to hold my waste board down. I think if they are screwed in from the bottom it will be OK.
I’m currently looking for threaded inserts for holding the clamps so I’ll be interested in your findings. I was considering these but I’m still on the fence. Not sure if M3, M5, or 1/4-20 is best. So, again, interested in the collective wisdom here.
Ultralight is like 30% lighter than standard I guess. I bought ultralight because at my lumber store the thickest standard mdf they had was 3/4” and I the ultralight 1-3/8 or 1-3/16 so I figured it would give me more surfacing time before I hit my inserts.
