T-Track router bits

Anyone here used the bits that cut t-slots for things like hold downs and stop blocks etc?? I was going to buy some aluminum t-track and thought that if this bit does a good job of making the tracks I would just get one of them instead and make all the t-track I want. What I'm worried about though is making the tables and fences weaker, and how well they (the routed track) hold up. I'm thinking that little bit of wood that's left that's supposed to hold the head of a bolt would break somewhat easily but I don't know for sure. Anyone??

I'd buy some aluminium t-track. The wood would eventually either break out, or be damaged by regular bolt clamping forces etc.

It'd be fine I guess for a replaceable subfence for a miter gauge or something expendable or a router table fence. But I wouldn't use it for something non-replaceable like a T-slotted miter track in the router table itself.

I think you can count on it. Especially when you least expect it. Ed
