A buddy inherited a couple of these (and many other items) from his father-in-law. It’s obviously a nice rail and type of clamp system, but I’ve never seen one like this, and am stumped on how it would be put into use. There are no holes drilled into the track to fasten it to say a benchtop or similar. Can anyone ID this and give a description of how it would be used? Thanks!

I’m pretty sure you drill your own holes after cutting a dado in whatever flat surface you’re mounting it to. A lot of t-track isn’t predrilled.

Then you just use them as cam clamps for holding things down.

I have a similar set up (shop made) to straight edge rough cut lumber. The red strip is clamped to the board so you have a straight surface to run along the tablesaw fence. You don’t sat how long it is so I may be way off base.

Thanks for the replies so far – the aluminum railing is about 7 or 8 feet long and about 4 or 5 inches wide.

That sound like my set up for “straightening” lumber.
