My last table had them, the new table doesn't and I haven't missed them so far. Old table had the fence tighten down on t tracks. This one just clamps to the edges of the table like the Router Workshop did on their show. I don't have a preference for either but the old fence on tracks did loosen off on me a couple of times and the clamps never have.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

A really late reply but I do have the plans that were downloaded a few years back and I built this for myself. One of my best projects as far as usefulness. I did make a few changes to suite my needs but generally the same plan. If you can't get the plans let me know and I'll see what I can do. I have both the PDF file and the SketchUp plans. About 4.5 MBs zipped.

Definitely tracks on both the table and fence for your feather boards and without feather boards you risk ruining your work when it gets away from the bit. This is very easy to do on long boards. As far as a miter track, I only use mine when doing rail and stile work but that's enough reason to have one. You should get the combo track.

I cheated on my build as I wanted a phenolic top so I built the cabinet and drawers and bought/installed the Woodpecker top with the Super fence. I got a great deal on it back a few years ago so I went for it. While I haven't used the track much yet I'm glad it's there because I can certainly see a use/need. I mean the set came with 4 feather boards to work in the tracks so there's clearly a great use both for holding down and towards the fence.
