Installed these on 2 VF-3’s and have made cleaning the table and blowing chips away fast and easy. We usually keep 3 vises on the mill but always hated dealing with chips in between the vises. This solves that problem. Easy to clean and easier to keep chips from piling up. We’re also able to remove portions of it to accommodate different fixtures and such. Tearing down a table isn’t a chore anymore and the time saved from having to clean it keeps us machining. Best thing for your table!
I notice the small things most don’t think about. Picking chips out the T-Slot after a job is annoying! Especially long running jobs. Blowing a part off and having chips fly at your face is also annoying. This product, as simple as it looks, saves me time, saves my company money and keeps our machines looking clean. This is a must have!
These have become as necessary as the power and coolant which run our machines. Want to save yourself a ton of time cleaning out these slots and keeping your work surfaces clean? Get these slots we’ve tried aluminum extrusion as well and they didn’t hold a candle to this fine product!
I installed these today and ran parts for 4 hours. With the exception of the chips in my vise, there are literally zero chips on my table. They just float away in the coolant since they cant get stuck in the t-slots.
This is a great product and saves so much labor cleaning chips! It was easy to install and we like that there is enough room under the cover to run air lines. We ran air lines underneath and popped them up right next to our air vises and pallet bases.
We try to automate as much as we can and having the T slot covers combined with a chip fan and through air spindle means we rarely hose down our machine table during the week and easily save hours per month cleaning between materials on one machine.
This should be a required purchase for any mill. Huge time saver. Great service. Will definitely buy from again.
These have made my lift so much easier. As I do a lot of aluminium which gets everywhere these chip guards have made clean ups so much easier!! Check the video to see how clean my table is after my chip fan! I would 100% recommend !!
These Chip Guard T-Slot covers have been great. They help the coolant flow over the table so chips just get swept away with the flood coolant. A few chips will find their way in the cracks between T-slot nuts and the chip guard but it is so much nicer to clean the machine after the covers are installed. They look nice too!
Waited awhile to make a review to make sure I thoroughly tested them and I have to say these are a must have for any machine with t slots! Cleaning the table with these installed is incredibly simple, especially with a chip fan!!
We have the T-Slot Covers in all of our machines. Easy to install and remove. I cannot recommend this more!
High quality and very durable T-slot covers. These are easy to install and reuse. Cut to length with a razor knife and press them in the slots. They fit tight and stay in place. My Brother Speedio table washes clean with little effort. Excellent value, I will buy again if needed. They also look great.
There are things in life that you wonder how you ever lived without; Octane Workholding T-slot covers is one of them. Keeping a machine clean so easily makes anyone's day better. The T-slot covers are very easy to work with and cut with a good pair of scissors and remain secured in place once installed. We will often cut harder steels dry throwing hot chips and I had concerns about these sticking to the T-slot covers but they have held up great and can easily be reused on different parts of the table when the workholding changes.
You have to see the video to understand just how effective these T-slot covers are with the compliment of a chipfan. The attached photo of the bare machine table shows the table with the vises and covers removed after running that part, no hose down and no airgun, it's that easy to keep your machine clean.
These T-slot covers are the most simple and elegant solution to protect your t-slots and speed up cleaning of your machine! It has easily reduced my cleaning time by half! It is also much easier to install than extruded aluminum, or hard plastic covers which don't fit very well. I recommend these to anyone who really cares about cleanliness and effective solutions!
We have these T-Slot covers in both of our mills. They work amazing and now we don't need to spend hours cleaning the slots for new T-Nuts. What are you waiting for?

The T-Slot Covers from Octane Workholding have been a game changer for our showroom. Keeping the demo machines clean and ready to run is much easier since we added them.
