    Suggestions for bed strips

     



    I'm looking for bed strips for my Stude project, polished stainless with punched holes. Stude's didn't come with wood beds. Mine is 78 inches long. The ones on ebay say they are 430 stainless which sound to me like it's going to rust a little, don't like that idea.

    If you have a local metal supplier, maybe ask them?
    Also - check out McMaster Carr, they have all sorts of things that may help your search.. plus they can ship in a day or so.

    There was a online place called the https://www.metalsupermarkets.com/metals/ I've bought from them a couple times. HTH

    I've used Mar-K strips in the past (both pre-drilled and undrilled) and have had good luck with them.

    I was going to recommend Mar-K as well. I used about 10 of their floor kits in the past and the quality was nicer than LMC, Brother's or any one else's back then.

    I ordered some Mar-k strips. I plan on using some trex decking for the boards. Going to route the grooves for the strips.
