You will have answers that include both, but I believe that most glue their MDF spoilboard down.

I glue mine but don't forget the thicker the spoil the less Z you have. A 1/4" might not seem like much but if you put a 2" piece on your machine you have to have room for the bit plus Z movement.

I used both. Might have been overkill, but I used nylon carriage bolts and glue. With the nylon bolts I don't have to worry about ruining a bit when surfacing my spoilboard.

Screws only, Id hate to think about having to eventually pry that glued one off, would be impossible without wrecking it.
If you got 1", plenty of room for countersink which should allow up to half a dozen resurfaces, and no worries about running into a screw. I use 3 rows of 8 screws, won't be going anywhere unless I want it to.

Screws only on mine to. I have the screw pattern as a tap file. Replacement will be as simple as laying the new board down and running the tap file.

Nylon screws here. I've never had any issues with them coming loose. It's trivial to change out the spoiler.

I countersunk the nylon screws so I can resurface the spoiler several times before I even have a chance of hitting the nylon screws.

When Doug says: "Id hate to think about having to eventually pry that glued one off, would be impossible without wrecking it.", I would submit that if it were glued, instead of prying it off, you simply surface it and glue another on top.

Along with being the most stable way of holding a spoilboard, it is also the least expensive, as you do not have to toss away the portion that is below the screw heads.

In any case, you (Eric) can choose from a number of methods to find what works best for you in the long run.
