Default Clamp track is old news for Woodpeckers

Kreg is advertising a great new idea - clamp track
https://www.kregtool.com/store/c34/c...de-kit--27-45/
Nothing against Kreg, but this is hardly new, Woodpecker's has had tracks with this configuration for years that I have found very useful, and Kreg's stuff is usually not very universal, in my experience.

Woodpecker's is ahead of the curve, again, way to go.

Me too. And it was 8 or 9 years ago that I purchased mine. Sounds like Kreg is on their game.

So which of these woodpecker tracks do you use and recommend?

The dp track is what I have used the most, you can bolt it from behind, jigs and clamps slide nicely - that is the type of track that Kreg is now selling, which I have bought from Woodpecker's for years.

I bought similar stuff a decade ago from t-track USA which is part of Peachtree. They have single, duo, and miter tracks. It's all up to your imagination on how to use it. Most of what I've done is touted into the tabletop and screwed down.

I like having a bunch of hardware, and keep a couple of Sortainers full of a wide variety of items. I like Rockler's Cam Clamps for use with those T-track fixtures. The more 'stuff' you have at hand, the more likely you'll put it to use...

Rockler's site seems to be down right now, but I look forward to checking out those cam clamps. I have track embedded in my workbench, outfeed/assembly table and crosscut sled, seems pretty handy to me, although I am sure I don't operate like you pros out there. Another unsolicited plug for Woodpecker's - they have a good assortment of clamps, knobs, etc., that I have enjoyed using.
