Incra- t track slot nuts
« on: May 11, 2020, 10:09 PM »
I have some of the incra t track that I am using for parallel guides. One question I have is what nuts are people using for sliding in the track?  I have tried the 1/4” - 20 and they are too big for the slot.

It should fit.

Here's a 1/4"-20 hex bolt in a thread detective, and the same bolt in a Incra T-track. I forgot to make a picture, but the corresponding hex nut will fit just as well.

Sorry I was a little premature in posting this.  It is the Incra T Track plus - it has the two slots in the T track.  Also,  it is the T nuts that I was referring to.  Apologize for any confusion.

I think you can get actual T-nuts and maybe T bolts from Incra. I can't find them on the Incra site. The site layout and search function isn't very good. But I bet if you contact them they can direct you to ordering.

Look for 8020inc part number 3785. These T-nuts will work in incra T-track plus extrusions guaranteed.
Just make sure its this part number. 8020 also makes T-nuts with 1/4-20 threads but for larger extrusion series which won't work for you.
