More importantly, a SKU....seems Home Depot can't function without them. I went to our local HD, and looked at me like I had lobsters coming out of my ears, when I asked them about the trim.

Thanks for the reply.

Paul, I also have a '68 - 24' TW. I purchased a window from Inland and clips. Clips are a little large, just use clear sealant to fill in the gaps. Works fine.

Not all the Home Depots sell the stuff. The one here doesn't. I tried to buy some a year ago and couldn't find it anywhere, then I did find it at Lowe's. Now they don't have it anymore. Now no one in Joplin has it. Kitchen countertop has that nice finished edge so it isn't a high-priority item anymore. I bought an extra strip when I bought the last of it, then I found one in my mother-in-law's garage. So I have a stock to last me a while. Seems like I need some every once in a while.

I don't know which Home Depot you went to, I'm assuming the one on McCain. I rarely go there since I live near Wrightsville and usually go to the one on Baseline. I have found that the Baseline store is often out of stuff necessitating a tip to west Little Rock or McCain. You may look in others. If I were you, I would start in west LR if you haven't looked there. Forget the phone, too.

Best of luck!

Try Ace Hardware for counter trim...we get ours there and have trimmed the table top, counters, etc...it looks terrific with the interior aluminum of an SE model...the trim is pre-drilled and even comes with screws....6 foot lengths I believe.

Here are a couple of pictures:

Recently, we came up short a couple of lengths of this trim. We went to order more from VTS where we got the first bunch and they were out. Fortunately, we had a label from the previous pieces and called the manufacturer to find out where else we could get it from. They said Ace Hardware, Lowes & Home Depot carry their line and could order whatever style we needed. We ordered ours through Home Depot.

The good news is, they had it delivered right to our local store and we didn't have to pay for a tube to ship it in or shipping at all - it turned out to be MUCH less expensive. We got (4) 8' lengths for <$13 (3 bucks a length +tax) which was less than the cost of the tube to ship it in from VTS - let alone the product & shipping. We do support VTS whenever we can - however this time, ordering it direct made much more financial (and timing) sense. Sorry Steve ~

Table Top Surface

What are you using for the table tops that the metal trim goes around?
Thickness etc? Am rebuilding the fold up table in my TW. Am hoping for something lighter and smaller, it's pretty heavy to setup, even though it's in good condition.

We used 3/4" plywood with plastic laminate.

You can get several different styles of edge trim in aluminum and stainless from McMaster-Carr.

They also have the old T-style Push Stem trim that installs in slots cut into the edge of the wood.

Here is the link to their catalog page.

http://www.mcmaster.com/#edge-trim/=45lc5m

Go to page 3713 for the metal trims.

Regards,

Kevin

Lobsters out of your ears? I suppose they do make a great substitute for Q-Tips!

We've always used them as Bunny Ears, and back scratchers!

See what one can learn here.

Angry Ace MD Table Trim from Terry

Thought I'd post the sky number Terry had sent me for the trim:

the edging is M-D Anodized Aluminum Counter Edging, #A-813. he Ace skew# was 43374 69450 5 (that may be a local skew...not sure). Price was $13.99 for 6' length...we have seen i t as low as $11.99...until we started buying it, anyway! Here's M-D's website that shows the spec's...they have other styles for different thicknesses as well...
M-D: Aluminum Edging Moulding - A813 - for 13/16" Material*

See his photo above for what it looks like.

Went by the local Ace store today or one of them and they didn't have the metal trim in stock. The computer showed it in the warehouse in Dallas. But to order I have to order minimum 6 pieces (about $65). So back to the drawing board. May call all of the local stores and see if any stock this or order from the manufacturer.

dinette metal trim

Will I may wind up with an extra 26' feet of it if I don't find a lesser deal. If I consider buying it from ODM and by the the time I pay for the shipping tube them I might as well buy the 6 pieces.
