I'm making a router fence for my table saw extension router table. The faces are MDF. I was planning on placing t-track in the front face. Do I have to glue/epoxy/cement it? I know screws don't hold very well in MDF but I don't like to epoxy my t-tracks down if I can help it…

Ah good idea Greg! I will have to check and see if that interferes with the aluminum angle support but hopefully it should be ok…

Stop blocks and feather boards don't expert that much pressure. I wouldn't glue them I have used doubke stick tape and screws. Works fine.

Tip:when drilling and screwing MDF place a clamp each side across hole will prevent splitting.

First, make sure the top of the T-track is a hair proud of the MDF surface! The way, if you over tighten, it will bear on the track. Next, use deep thread, coarse screws. If you want to go overboard, a bit of epoxy or Gorilla glue will give extra insurance.
