Jig hardware?

I know I read a thread on this earlier in the year but I can't find it. Where do you guys get most of your jig hardware? I know the knobs/bolts and stuff can be found at the box stores most of the time. What about the t-tracks, tie-downs, toggle clamps etc? Also having a hard time finding the runners that I see on the super sleds.

Thanks!

I got a Rockler catalog a few days ago and they had the 17 piece kit for $19.99 as a catalog order only. It's still the regular price online. Maybe that will change with the upcoming sale.

I was in Rockler today (Drooling all over the sawstop). The sale starts on the 31st, but they gave me a discount on some stuff I bought today. I played the "I live so far away, I cannot come back card" Really, they have everything you need to set up jigs, pattern clamps, etc. Be careful with some of thier gimicks. For example, they have sleds, and drill press tables, ect that are made of MDF. You can make your own a lot better. These have "T" channels that are only screwed into the MDF. Not very good quality

Alright, yeah I tried the usual suspects (Rockler and Woodcraft) but their prices are a bit hit or miss sometimes and I'll be honest.. I hate paying full price anymore because I know it will be on sale a few weeks later and I'll regret it. Thanks for the tip on the upcoming sale!

Anyone know where to get those plastic runners for the super sled or are people just making them from stock and ply? Rockler only has the 17mm I think.

Yeah, Peachtree is where its at for jig hardware. The prices are much better than the other places I tried and they have a better variety. Just placed and order (shhh don't tell the Mrs) and got a cabinet basics book too - cant wait to get some jigs going!

Bofa is right. Peachtree Woodworking has good online prices and service. I am a little partial to Rockler and Woodcraft because we have all three in my area and the folks in the Peachtree Woodworking (just my opinion) haven't seemed that knowledgeable or helpful sheen I am in the store.
