Can't remember where but you'll also need a router bit if doing a scratch build to make the groove that the t-molding slides into.

having not answered your question, I will do so again.  I can't remember where but I did order it when I ordered all of my buttons.

groovygamegear.com (advertiser here) sells t molding and slot cutters.  Selection is less than Tmolding.com but he doesn't have a minimum order and his slot cutter is about he cheapest I've seen at $20.

I always order my t-molding from t-molding.com.
Never had a problem with them, but groovygamegear is always good too.

T-moulding's one of those strange things you think would be readily available, perhaps not in all colours but at least in simple colours like black. In the UK at least, hardly anyone supplies them and those that do get theirs (as we do) in bulk from T-molding.com as at least theirs have been fabricated especially for the arcade community.

I used t-molding.com.  fast service even up here in canada, and cheapest prices I found. Also they carry 5/8 inch which is what I needed for my bartop build.

+1 to t-molding.com

I just order 60ft in Red and got it in 3 days. Going to be ordering another 20ft this week.

I found better prices [FALSE!] and cheaper shipping at http://www.gamemolding.com/ which I found through this forum.

I mention it mainly because gamemolding.com never comes up in a google search for some reason. I was planning to order from t-molding.com, even added items to my cart until I found gamemolding listed in this forum. I took a chance even though the site obviously isn't updated much. It still says something like 'we will be closed over the july 4 holiday.' - edit: it doesn't say that anymore. But my order arrived 2 days later. So consider this a positive review.

I got my router bit for 19.92 from amazon.com.

Gamemolding is cheaper if they have what you need.

$25 with the 20% off coupon will get you a complete slot cutter set from Harbor Freight.  Spend the extra $5, you never know...

My only beef with t-molding.com, and this is VERY long standing, is that he/they sell it in 20 foot lengths.  I've yet to encounter a cabinet that only needs 20 feet and everything I've redone typically needs 24-28.  It's a built in upsell, IMO.  My other gripe is that my last order was all chunked together in one plastic bag and showed up with scuffs and scratches.  Once you get over your phobia of dings on fresh t-molding, it's fine.  They're making money hand over fist but it's a fairly cheap expenditure to make a cabinet look nice so suck it up.

Gamemolding is cheaper if they have what you need.

I just checked and it seems I was misinformed in general.
Gamemolding.com is cheaper for the chrome T-molding I bought, but T-molding.com has much lower prices on your standard black/leather textured molding. Shipping is probably still cheaper at gamemolding.com.


My only beef with t-molding.com, and this is VERY long standing, is that he/they sell it in 20 foot lengths.

Gamemolding.com has a 20ft minimum, but you can specify any length above that.
It's not very eco-friendly to have thousands of dudes around the country with an extra 12ft of t-molding sitting in their garages with no purpose. T-molding probably pre-cuts several bushels of molding in advance to save time rather than cut-to-order. But cut-to-order would be a better process in the long run.
