Good Idea But A Bit Too Bulky for Me

William Posted December 12, 2013
I like this product -- it does the job that it is supposed to do, but it is a bit bulky. Getting a push stick past it is a little troublesome, and unfortunately it is not my "go to" device for hold down. I prefer feather boards and fence clamps holding a board to the fence to prevent the piece from lifting.

Wheels are cheap slippery nylon

Robert Posted March 10, 2014
Overall good idea and good design. But it looks like someone over time cheapened these more and more, the wheels should be made out of rubber or material that would grip the board and pull it toward the fence and the old ones were made like that and worked great. Now the wheels are made out of cheap yellow, no grip at all and very slippery plastic (you can slide the board away from the fence with no effort at all) they still provide downward force OK but do not pull the board towards the fence as they should. Just use good feather board instead, works just as good.

Editor’s note: In view of Robert’s comments we have consulted with our supplier and found that no issues or complaints of quality have been detected with these. The composition of the wheels has been the same since 2006. Prior to 2006 they were of a harder consistency, rather than softer as Robert’s comment seem to indicate. Our supplier noted that excessive exposure to sunlight may, over time, make them less pliable, but this would take years of direct exposure, and is not a likely occurrence in most shops. Based on this information from our supplier we are confident that these are a suitable and safe accessory to use.
