Ive never seen a router set up like that. But, it is usable. The holes may have been related to a fence system. Try researching the model # of the table for a manual.

If it were me, I would ignore the holes and build a fence that runs lengthwise. You’ll just have the router offset to the left instead of the middle. You can always add a support wing if needed.

Only other option is build a new top to suit your preference.

I’ve built 3 router tables and found t tracks in the tabletop of limited use other than for a featherboard. IMO you should not use a miter gauge in a router table, but rather a coping sled that rides along the fence. A T track in the fence, however is a useful feature for hold downs and stop blocks.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
