I am missing something about attaching the Dashboard rail clamp to the TrackTubes or are you using something attached to the Tracktube to hold the Dashboard clamp?

Thanks, but bear with me here, but the general idea is that the Tracktubes function as the base for the top which overlaps the Tracktube.  Then the T15 extrusion is attached flush to the edge of the table and then the Dashboard clamps attach to that.  I assume you could also use Rob's https://dashboardpws.com/products/universal-track-star for cuts as well?

@John Russell Correct. I suppose you could, I don't own that product from Rob. My setup, I drop the fence in, attach a guide rail, square it up and go. I know @Grev just uses dogs now. I prefer having a pivoting guide rail and fence.

With the way my table is setup the guide rail gets registered against two dogs the same every time. The fence is always dropped into the same two dog holes using benchdogs.co.uk fence dogs. I have a calibrated measuring tape applied to my fence. As long as the guide rail is tight to the two dogs when I put it on, then the whole thing is square and calibrated.
