You can get 10 foot sticks at the semi truck repair shop. I went to a shop in Bridgeview on 87th 1 light west of harlem. Cut it down to strips I need to fit my v-nose.

Do as G2G says. I have it in stock at work. I can even get the elusive vertical etrack.

Most often comes in ten foot lengths.

E-Track sucks, get I-track.

And that huge place that starts with an M has both in stock.

And btw - Google e-track or i-track, there are tons of places with it.

4.5" grinder with cutting disc sliced right through mine as does a sawzall

a hacksaw... not gonna be fun, try to keep the blade as flat to the steel as you can, to engage as many teeth as possible and it will run easier

metal blade on the sawzall equals about a minute each strip to cut.

did you have a grinding wheel on there (1/4"thick or so) or a cutting wheel (1/8" or less thick)

L-track is much easier to adjust and takes up less space.

Sorry typo "L" as in "EL"

I use L track in my trailer and love it. In almost all applications it has a higher load rating as well.

And I may be wrong, but I believe the seats in Airliners are attached to the plane via L track, its some pretty sturdy stuff.

Airliners and buses use L-track. E-track didn't meet code
