My new table saw has a rip fence faced with UHMW plastic on each side. I don't trust jigs clamped to the slippery surfaces, so I mounted two, 2-foot lengths of T-track along the fence's metal spine. This simply requires drilling and tapping screw holes. I also fastened two more lengths of T-track above the top edges of the fence facings to accommodate hold-downs, featherboards or other jigs that come in handy when I'm using the saw. The track creates a universal jig mounting system that's both solid and easy to install.
