Have any of you tried mounting your MPCNC to this table top from Rockler?April 30, 2019 at 1:32 pm #98737
The table is nice but the price is hard to justify when they are selling the track itself for $10.
T track is kinda hard to use as you will have clamps sticking up, a few embedded nuts in the table are easier to use as the excess can hang out the bottom without worries of hitting your gantry on it.May 3, 2019 at 8:43 am #99139
Not sure I understand your proposed alternative. Do you mean just punch holes in your mounting board and then put T-nuts in them? Aren’t you still going to have the clamps that go into those sticking up? Or are you saying you bolt THROUGH your material into the T-nut?
Do you have a photo of your suggestion?May 3, 2019 at 8:50 am #99140
High profile clamps vs low profile clamps vs no clamps!

You can see here how if they were running this bolt into a tnut the excess bolt length could be on the bottom of the table instead of protruding up into the air where the router could hit it.May 4, 2019 at 8:26 pm #99325
That’s a nice but the tracks are too far apart in my opinion. I use 3/4 MDF ripped to 5″ widths with 5/8 t-track between each strip. Lower left spoil board really takes a beating on my machine so I just flip it or replace the one board when it’s time. I use punched flat bar for hold downs that I bend in a $50 vice brake.
