    T track on enlarger table. What for?

    My 10x10 Fotar table was modified with t track and was used at a lab that did lots of retouching and dupe work. I need to rebuild the table and will likely leave it out but What would they have used it for? Holding down easels?

    Assuming the tracks are on the top...

    I expect it was used for clamping an easel in place so each print would be identical.

    yeah, on top. I'm gonna make a new table since this one has absorbed too much moisture to be flat. Those tracks happen to be the same dimensions as the t-tracks in my router table so I'll save them for my miter saw bench.

    To adjust and lock down a roll paper easel.
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    Focomats used a track to lock down an easel. Maybe the T track is for accurate/repeatable positioning.
