Considering the wide variety of T-Track accessories available, the utility of the Rockler T-Track Table Top is virtually limitless. Clamp objects at the edge of the table, in the center of the table and anywhere in between for fast, stable sawing, sanding, routing or assembly. Use it with any of our many T-Track Hold Downs, or with our Bench Cookie Work Grippers and the Bench Cookie T-Track Risers (#46311, sold separately). You can also use it with toggle clamps mounted on our Toggle Clamp Mounting Plates (#24872, sold separately). The spacious top measures 28" x 40", larger than most comparable tables. Mount it on a shop-built base, or on our 24"W x 36"L ShopStand (#48089, sold separately).

Use 3/4" wood screws if fastening to Rockler Shop Stand
This table is a great investment and I plan on using mainly for cabinet work (assembly, face frames, doors) and miscellaneous sanding projects. I purchased the 24"x36" Rockler Shop Stand, casters, and various accessories (also great). Per Rockler, use 3/4" wood screws (not included) to fasten the table top to the stand. I drilled small pilot holes first...worked great!

T-Track Table Top
Heavy duty, durable, flat, work surface. I purchased this table top along with the metal stand and wheels (all sold separately). I also purchased a number of the t-track tools and accessories; overall a bit pricey but the quality is worth the cost.

Very High Quality Product - However ...
This is a very high quality Rockler product. However, its thickness, which I assumed was 3/4", is actually 1.5 ". Thus, it is too thick for use on my previously-built outfeed/assembly table - which was built to match the floor slope in my garage workshop and the height of my table saw. I will eventually remove the T-tracks from this product and integrate them into my table. ATTENTION: THIS TABLE IS 1.5" THICK.

Rockler T-Track Table Top
Well made and well packaged for shipment. I added this T Track Table Top to replace a 3/4 inch pressed board laminated extension top that came with my Delta 10" Contractor Table Saw. The T-Track Table Top is great upgrade to my table saw and will now assist me in the assembly of future projects.

What are some good methods of attaching Rockler T-Track Table Top to Material Mate?

I have a very small shop. I'd like to mount this to some lumber so that I can lay it atop my table saw without needing to fully lower the blade. What does the bottom of this table top look like? Is it easy to screw some wood to the bottom of it to hold it on my table saw and above the blade?
Ed S on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't recall what the bottom looks like. You can screw wood to the bottom of it but you might want to use some kind of a threaded insert as the material is more like an MDF.
I have read a number of places online that the T-Tracks on this table arent difficult to lift up when strong clamping pressure is used. I was intending to mount this table to a sheet of 3/4" Baltic Birch and then to the Rockler metal stand for added support against the sagging I had also read can occur. Would it be better to remove the stock screws holding the T-Track down and replace them with longer ones that go through the table top and into the Baltic Birch underneath? Or perhaps use bolts all the way through and washers and nuts on the other side?
Benjamin R on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My understanding with "T" Tracks is that they are designed mostly for light clamping and any significant upward stress is going to be met with problems primarily because of the small fasteners, but also the relatively soft materials the tracks and table are constructed of. I bought mine to work with my Festool MFT tables (that fit beautifully by the way) and contact cemented several different grades of sandpaper to. The reverse side has a nice clean hard flat surface ideal for small detail work.
I have a number of thick work surfaces that I have drilled 3/4" holes through for rugged clamping setups, you just might find this system much more to your needs than "T" Tracks for now.
Does the t track table only come in 28x40? I really need 28x48
Mark Q on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, we only offer this table in the 28" x 40" size
Will Kreg Clamps and accessories fit these tracks?
Brad S on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will.
My garage is so small that I would need to use the tabletop on folding sawhorses instead of the base, then store the table top vertically when the cars are in the garage. Would the top stay on saw horses just based on it's weight alone?
Larry B on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have mine resting on a very heavy table. It is, however, held also by its edges so it can't move. The bottom is a somewhat slippery material so ot would probably slide if leaned into if it were simply resting on top of the saw horses. It would work if you hare careful but it would be better if it were supported also in some way that it couldn't easily be pushed off the saw horses. The t track table itself is very heavy and would not come off the saw horses unless pushed - say by leaning into it with your body.
I bought this table top and the shop stand to go with it, but see no obvious way to mount one to the other. Do you actually have to screw through the veneer, or is there a more clever way?
David D on Dec 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The top is attached with screws driven through the leg assembly and into the top. Screws are provided. Predrilling is a good idea.
What is the distance between the table edge and the t-track?
Duane H on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 4 inches from the first track and 14 inches from the second track (10 inches between the first and second track.
The outer edge to track is also 4 inches.
I find the hold downs do not work well if you are trying to hold down a smaller piece since the tracks are not as adaptable as when using peg holes in a table top. I do like the top. It's quite sturdy. Can be flipped over if you want a solid table top.
Can you group more than one top together, eg. Make an 80" or 120" long combined table?
JimBlose on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I suppose so, although I hadn't thought to try it. The edges are relatively flat and the channels are open at the ends as they must be to get the hold downs in. So, if two or more were aligned properly, one could probably move the hold downs across a small gap into an adjoining table. Of course, you would need an underlying flat table large enough to accommodate two or more linked together.
Will this fit on the top of the material mate and still give you room for full sheets of plywood?
Lee L on Aug 26, 2018
Is the top perfectly flat ? Need it to be flat to glue up and join backs and fronts of acoustic guitars...
Hoot on Aug 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I’ve been using the t-track table top for picture framing. So far I’ve haven’t had any issues as to not aligning when 45 degree angles need to be perfect. Although I’ve not done anything like guitar backs lam sure that the table top will serve you well. For me it’s perfectly flat.
How is the t-track table mounted to an existing work bench top?
Daryl R on Dec 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Although I mounted mine to a Rockler metal stand, I can think of three ways to mount the table upon an existing work bench: 1) on the metal stand, the top is held by screws from below; if your bench is thin enough you could do the same; 2) if you don't care about "looks," you could just screw it to the bench from the top (with countersunk wood screws); 3) if I wanted to use my table atop a bench, I'd either just secure it on occasion between bench dogs, or I'd glue/screw edges to the bottom of the t-track table that would "nest" over the bench and hold the table in position. In the latter case, the t-track top could be removed if you wished to expose and work on the bench top. I actually made a plywood cover that both can protect my t-track and brings a surface to the same level as my table saw so that I can use it as an infeed or outfeed table. That also keeps me from drilling into the t-track table or spilling paint on it when I want to do a job that doesn't require t-track fasteners.
What is the recommendation for fastening this top to a stand?
William on Jan 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used 3/4 x 6 screws from the bottom, 4 on the long sides and 3 on the ends through the holes already in the top rail of the rocker stand I bought for the top. Be careful and do not put the screws directly under the T tracks. Hope this helps. Bill
Is the t track screwed in from the top or bolted from bottom?
Jim on Jun 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: from the top allows a smooth track face for clamps to slide on.
How does the T-Track Clamping Table attach to the Rockler metal stand? Are there inset threads in the table for bolts? Or is it just done with wood screws from the bottom though the mount holes in the table?
Benjamin R on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I screwed my tabletop to my shop built stand with wood screws into the MDF. I'm pretty sure that the tabletop would be attached to Rockler's metal stand the same way.
What is difference between in line stop and the short stop? They appear to be the same to me.
Larry C on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Inline Stop measures 1-1/2'' x 1-1/2'', and has a T-slot keyway running perpendicular to the stop face. I like using it for framing pieces joined at 90 degrees. The short stops have the same clpomg mechanisms but are more like workbench stops. Hope this helps.
how to secure tale?
robert s on Jan 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Mine is attached to a wooden base from below using wood screws. I made sure I was screwing into the meaty part and not the track section and made sure my screws were not too long.
Hi, on the table what is the distance between the tracks from the edge. Vertical and horizontal?
David M on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The black edge around the top adds to the measurements. Each measurement are from edge to inside the track parallel with the edge. All outside tracks are 3-7/8 inches and the center track is 13-7/8 inches. Over all measurements are 40-1/8" long and 28-1/8" long.
Is this (when purchased with clamps, etc) an alternative to the beech workbenches that Rockler sells?
Frank G on Dec 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I bought this top, along with the leg assembly and casters, over a year ago and use it along with my workbench. An assortment of the fixed track stops and a pair of adjustable inserts allows you to glue and clamp up one part of an assembly and let the glue dry while freeing up your workbench. This was especially valuable while building a highboy with ten drawers.
What about glue dripping down into the tracks?
proesler on Nov 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s a problem. I don’t use it for glue ups any more for that reason. You can use blue painters tape for both sides of the clamp (attached to the table) to cover up the tracks but directly under the clamp can get glue drips.
Will this table and T-track work with the Kreg Heavy-Duty Clamp System? I own two clamps and deluxe cookie set.
Bob007 on Apr 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do not have any kreg camping equipment. A thought only... if your kreg clamps will fit the standard Rockler t-track it should fit the table top. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

What is the best way to attach t track table top to legs?
Brandon P on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The table top should have included a bag of screws. Turn the table top upside down on the floor or a work bench, center the leg assembly on the top and screw in the screws. It would be helpful to pre-drill the screw holes.
Do kreg clamps work on this table ?
