The Shapeoko from Carbide 3D is an incredible desktop CNC Router kit that can take on a wide variety of stock materials, and with the T-Track and clamp kit, the securing of those stock materials anywhere in the build area is a breeze.
The T-Track and Clamp kit for the Shapeoko is an addon for the standard MDF wasteboard and includes narrow MDF sections with aluminum t-tracks in between. These tracks hold on to bolt heads and provide a secure anchor point for material clamps. With multiple tracks the different material sizes and shapes mountable are effectively limitless! The included clamps are (of course) CNC machined and adjustable in positioning. In the event you need special sized clamps, you are already equipped with your Shapeoko to custom make you own. If you are looking for stock material, we suggest the MatterHackers Project Wood.
T-Track and Clamp Kit installed above the standard wasteboard
The T-Track and Clamp kit is manufactured by Carbide 3D, so the sizing and fitment of individual parts are just right. As mentioned above, the T-Track installs on top of the standard wasteboard and so is best purchased along with your machine to be assembled as part of the kit during the initial setup. But if you already own and are loving your Shapeoko, have no fear - the T-Track kit can be easily added on at any time after assembly as well.
