I bit the bullet and purchased the Carbide T-Track kit for my XXL instead of making it myself to save some time.
I’ve read the instructions and the images don’t match my reality.
However, on my machine, the spacers must extend under the rail leaving the screw holes fully covered by the beam preventing installation of the screws (this happens on both sides of the machine.) Do you think if I don’t screw down that edge under the beam and only do the otherside near the T-track that there would be any problems?
Also, there seems to be other issues in the instructions that seem amiss.
For instance, the T-track in the picture above, the bottom of the t-track is only slightly recessed just meet at the top of the the front brace leaving plenty of room to slide in the bold for workholding. On my machine, the top of the t-track is flush with the brace preventing access to insert the hex bolts. I intend to simply slide the t-track back 1/2" to accommodate the head, but the instructions might want indicate that.
The instructions also indicate the t-track is not symmetrical with holes on one end starting 7/8" from the front and ending 1 1/2" from the back; however, the t-track I was provided is indeed symmetrical.
Do the instructions need updated? Or did I recieve old stock?
