Using a sacrificial plywood base can make an excellent solution to protecting the machine, clamping and aligning issues, and having multiple students prep a single machine at once.

The plywood is locked into the T track with 1/4 20 hex bolts. 1/4 diameter holes are placed above the open T track slots so dowel rods can be used for alignment. If students connect the dots horizontally, they can use that line to determine where it would be safe to add a screw if additional features or hold downs need to be added.
