    I have found an additional use of these T-nuts.
    The back (right side) of the rip fence is getting marked and scuffed a bit by my Rockler Fence clamps

    ​and as convenient as the clamps are the back (right side) of the rip fence has ribs from the extrusion making the landing spot for the clamp foot smallClick image for larger version  Name:	image.png Views:	0 Size:	828.1 KB ID:	856975
    So I used two T-nuts on the back (right) side of the rip fence with two small
    knobs (or wing nuts work) to have a quick drop on smooth backing
    Note that the Rip Fence top T-Track is 1-1/8" but the right side T-track used here is only 1".
    But that's no problems because the "T" head I cut is 1" x 1-1/8" so it fits both if you rotate it correctly; this T-nut fits both tracks.

    makes a smooth landing for the fence clamps and comes on and off in seconds. Although I suspect I may just leave it on most of the time until I need to access the T-track.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.
