adhesive, not glue, a strip of ply under the grove..
ply will be stronger, less reactive to moisture and way more stable than wood...
the adhesive will make that strip monolithic w/ the top...
the thicker and more plies the plywood the more golden you will be...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

I suppose after adding more plywood under the track, I could face the edge with 1/8" aluminum.

......and if the 1/8" aluminum hung 1/4" below the table creating a lip, a fence could overhung and be locked against it so the fence could always be squared to the table. Oh the possibilities. 😄
Are the adhesives you mentioned urethane?

Not meant for squaring... for incremental movements with an adhered tape measure on the table at the fence. Or do you just wiggle one end of the fence and keep trying till you get it wiggled just right? I'm not a router guy, so what I'm doing is new to me.

I've always used a product called Chemrex 948. It now goes by another name. It's claim to fame in the flooring trades was for adhering tackstrip to a
concrete floor. If you spritzed the tackstrip lightly with water, they said you could stretch the carpet in 3 hours.
I know what you mean about letting it cure. 1/2 way though the curing process, it won't hold bubble gum to a shoe. 😄
Once cured it's bulletproof.
I'm actually testing it on a plastic transition piece as we speak.
