One final question on my Router Table top....I hope!!

I've installed the mini-T track to guide the fence. My question is: How far in front of the router plate do I made my miter T-track? I figured I'd use it to add feather boards, etc.

Thanks
Bill

Thank you BobJ. that's what I was thinking after looking at all the pics of tables posted here in the forums. Next.....finish the fence, then on to the cabinet!

Okay Bob J and Palmer. What is the logic of placing the track so far to the front? Not being argumentative, just don't know! I set mine 1 1/2" and thought that might be too much!

I ran 2 tracks from the back to the front T-track. I did that so I could mount a fence, hold downs, feather boards, etc. anywhere I wanted to.

Hi Tom

In my case I use a over size mounting plate and a dual track system..in that way I can use just about any hold down device or sled..

I don't use the standard feather boards, I use the OP type they work so much better than the norm, on the fence or on the table table..

Sorry to all, I mis-read the post. I thought Bill meant the front to back tracks, not the miter track.
