Okay, so I have been bouncing back and forth on this and need some outside opinions. I still need to finalize my spoilboard and have 2 different ways to go.

(1) Create a board using a simple T-Track system of hold downs. This will be fast and easy to replenish as the spoil board gets worn down. However, I have been told it is not great for cutting plastic sheets, which I plan on cutting.

(2) Create a Vac hold down table. This is a little more in-depth in terms of time needed complete as well as when it comes time to swap it out. BUT, it will hold the plastic sheets down quite nicely.

So, anyone with their CNC up and fully running have any ideas? Start with T-Track and upgrade to Vac table? Go for the Vac Table right away?
