  • T track installation

    ok I mave one of thoses t tracks (Mighty track ) that I purchased from peachtree.
    I want to add it to the table extension that I built to my TS 3650.
    The table that I used is that particule board stuff with the white finish on it for making shelves, has a plastic side to it on one edge, ( what is the name of that stuff? )....is that what they call mdf ?
    but if I cut a grouve for the track, with a router the remaining material will only be 1/8th of an inch thick under the "T" slot. Very, very weak eh.
    So I was thinking I could add a piece of wood under the table to strenghen it using something like glue woodcrapenters glue or I have some gorrilla glue I have not yet used. I would have to remove that white finish for good bonding . how to go about removeing a strip of material under the slot lets say about 5 inches wide and the lenght of the slot and just deep enought to get to the wood?

    need some sujestions

    The white stuff is called melamine. I don't know if gorilla glue will hold it, but on WoodNet (I think) someone suggested something called Roo glue. You wouldn't need to remove it with Roo glue.

      I'm sure that you can bond melanine to melanine with Titebond 2 with enough strength for what you have in mind. If you want to be sure, put several woodscrews along a line outside where the track will be.
      Half-inch shelving is pretty flexible so you may want to add a couple or three ribs along the width of your table while you're at it.

      Good luck.
