Welcome, Bill. Some swear by them and others swear at them. It is totally your decision as to what you think you would want on your (operative word "Your") table. Personally, I don't have either on my table, but as stated earlier, one or the other may be useful for attaching feather boards and such, but that would be about all.

Old_Chipper Welcome Bill,
It's hard to say, I loaded my first table, track going both directions. But I haven't used the track all that often. There is one disadvantage to all the lifts I looked at, and that is that you can’t put a slot close enough to the bit, were you often need one.
One thing to keep in mind, you can always add track later if you need it.

the_nite_owl You can buy Miter/T-Track combo track. I just received some for the table I am building.
I am relatively new to using a router table and not certain of what my needs will be in the future so I went with a combo track so I would have both.
The Jessem router table I worked with in a class I took had T-Track/Miter/T-Track inset to the table. I figure one T-Track and one Miter slot should be good enough for me.
You can buy it from,,, and I am sure many others.

Echonav My router table has a regular miter slot. I use it for attaching feather boards and using my coping sled (required). No T slot is required....

Mike Wingate I have neither on my router table. Some people think it weakens the top and can cause sagging. I use a Right Angle Jig, conected to my Incra fence, or just run the jig against the fence. It all depends what you want to do with your router.
