    Looking at sliders and skids, would rather buy local. Any recommendations for bolt-on sliders built locally?

    skootx,

    we can build you custom sliders and skids if you have another design for sliders that you would like.

    Since this thread is along the same lines... I think..

    Anyone know of a decent place that can get custom (or uncommon) aluminum extrusion?

    Looking for basically a back to back C-channel, similar to this, but mirrored on the solid plane.

    I know it's a little off but would either of these work?

    Or this http://www.8020.net/T-Slot-4.asp the third over?

    That first one might. Does it come in different sizes? I've checked out the t-slot and I think they are too small, but could possibly work. I was thinking about picking a piece or two up and seeing what I could do with it.
