So far, most of the comments support the idea that it’s better to have it and not use it (or use it occasionally) than not have it at all, well, as long as no one regrets installing a miter track in their shop- made RT, I’m all for it.

I did, but it doesn t get much use. Even so, if I make a new top it will still have the miter slot. they don t take much to install and they are fairly inexpensive (at least they were when I buil tmy table 14 years ago or so).

That’s exactly how often I use mine (which is not often) but I guess when I do need a miter slot, I ‘ll regret not having it so I have decided to go ahead and cut the Dado for it.

Loren, I would have got the combo track (T-track/ miter channel) but my RT top is only 22” deep and there’s not enough room to put a combo track in there ,that would have been a better option.

Many thanks to every one of you who for sharing your thoughts.
