Dell F from Los Altos, CA Posted September 29, 2013
I have been using these feather boards for five years. They are strong enough to hold my boards against the fence. They are convenient enough that I use them for nearly all my cuts. Very infrequently, the feather board will line up on the t-slot on my saw table! when this happens, I use a second magnetic feather board set perpendicular to the first one to hold it in place. I saw comments from others that the magnets are not strong enough-I find the magnets are plenty strong for my use and I have cut at 50,000 board feet of lumber on my saw from 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches thick. I can remove the feather boards with a strong rotation of my hand or by swinging my hand into the handle of the feather board. I use the "flipper" behind the handle infrequently but it is nice to have when I don't feel like manhandling the feather board. I also use two feather boards when I am cutting a dado into short pieces of small lumber! one on the in-feed side of the saw blade and one on the out-feed side of the saw blade. Having two of these feather boards is really nice. I like the fact that my feather board is between my hand and the saw blade thus preventing me from inadvertently putting my hand into the saw blade. As both a safety measure and a tool to improve my cuts, I could not be happier with this tool. My friends have bought these after seeing mine in use and they are happy, too.

I nearly killed myself with a kickedback board, was not using the saw safety stuff. I bought these and they work just fine for my purposes. It may not be perfect but I use them, they are quick and convenient. A safety item not used is no good, these are good because I use them. Kickback on a table saw is for real. Don't run without some kind of holddown!

A Must Have for the Wood...

A Must Have for the Wood Shop. Here is a featherboard that's effective, economical and a pleasure to use. Before buying one, I only had read reviews and comments. Now I have two of them. The clever design really allows one tool to serve as two conventional featherboards--one to hold the workpiece down; the other to keep it snug to the fence. They are indispensible when using the table saw or the bandsaw. A great investment in time-saving and in safety.
