Incra Channels and Tracks options
But which one should you use? This article will help you choose the correct one for your application
 
INCRA T-TRACK
This track is designed with a host of enhancements. Like other tracks, the extruded anodized aluminium construction is designed to house a 1/4"-20 bolt head, but that’s where the similarity ends. First, this track features a “well” in the extrusion allowing the track to be mounted using #8 pan head screws versus #6 flat head screws used by other tracks. The extra depth of the “well” allows the use of 1/4"-20 nuts that are not accommodated by other tracks.
Typical application (pictured) include Workbench, Drill Press, Jig & Fixtures and Mitre gauges

 
INCRA SCALE TRACK

Like other tracks, the extruded anodized aluminium construction of the Incra Scale Track is designed to house a 1/4"-20 bolt head, but that’s where the similarity ends. First, this track features an extrusion housing on the underside to enable one to fix the track below
 
The Incra Scale Track has the addition of a profile to accept the highly accurate Incra Lexan scale, that can be moved to a “zero” reference. Incra Lexan scales are available for reading in mm Right to Left or Left to Right.

INCRA MITRE CHANNEL
The INCRA Mitre Channel accepts INCRA mitre gauges or other brands with standard 3/4" x 3/8" mitre bars, as well as the INCRA Mitre Sliders, and many mitre slot-mountable feather boards. The "T" area in the bottom of the channel accommodates the washer or retaining clips also found on most mitre gauges.
 
Typical applications pictured below include a mitre gauge and the use of mitre sliders.
