WHY is T-slotted aluminum bar so hard to come by locally, and so pricy

i'm realizing that despite already having a light table + terrible overhyped kickstarter negative holder, i'm really gonna need to DIY a copy stand too. but the big chain stores don't have aluminum extrusion, and it's too expensive (by a long ways) to justify ordering pre-cut and shipping. if i had basic tools i could just use aluminum box/angle, but atm i don't have a drill press, a vise or even a miter box, just my ex' dremel and a 120V hand drill (and i'd still need some slotted extrusion on the vertical members to get the height adjustment, anyway)
