Write your review here. It must be at least 10 characters long. Consider whether you would recommend this product and what you like or A hardware store clerk informed me about Rockler when I told him I had intended to make my own weatherboard. As a new table saw owner I am so glad your device spared me from trying to make one on my own, as the owner's manual had suggested. It would have required me to use C-clamps to secure it to the tables. Whew! Glad to have your device instead! about it.

Great for Bandsaw, TableSaw and Router Table
They really cinch down tightly and add another margin of safety to your table saw. I also use these with my router table and my bandsaw.

working with small pieces on my table saw, this past week, my fingers almost made contact with the blade several times, while trying to hold the pieces against the fence, and down on the table. I think it is time to save my fingers!

Question for Rockler and people who use this adjustable featherboard on Dewalt table saw DW745. The warning on the package says for saw to position the featherboard at least 2 inches before the blade to prevent binding and kickback. I understand the need for it to be positioned before the blade but is it really necessary at least 2 inches before the blade? At least 2 inches is probably feasible for larger table saws but on my compact jobsite Dewalt DW745, with the blade raised for cutting ¾ in plywood, the best I can do is 1 inch between the blade and the first feather. There isn’t enough space to position the featherboard at least 2 inches. I watched this video on Youtube of someone using this adjustable weatherboard. The featherboard isn’t located at least 2 inches in this video. It’s just barely before the blade. I am new to table saws and I am taking every word of safety caution seriously. Please help. I really don’t want to return it to Rockler.
Tan-Hai N on Dec 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have been using this same table saw with the Rockler featherboards for about 2 yrs now. Becasue of the tablesaw size issue you mention, I place the featherboard so the front is just barely NOT touching the blade. Depending on the blade height and table size, many times I am only able to secure the front lock. No issues thus far.
How do you get the featherboard to stay in place in the miter slots? I have tightened down the knobs and the featherboard just slides down the miter slot. I didn't receive any instructions so I have the bolts facing upward going through the center hole of the metal miter pieces, and into the threads of the knobs. Did I assemble it incorrectly? How does the featherboard "lock" into the miter slot? The table saw I am using is the Dewalt DWE7480 and has standard size miter slots.
gauntlet21 on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As soon as you tighten the featherboard the rails expand.
Can this be flipped to feed in either direction? I would like one for a band saw, but the feed direction in the picture is for a router, table saw, etc.
A shopper on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This featherboard is not designed to be flipped, but I took a look at mine and see no reason that it can't be flipped for use on a band saw. The feathers are molded with open channels on the underside, but it doesn't appear that would affect the performance of the featherboard negatively if flipped over for use on a band saw. It can be clamped down when flipped over in the same way that it is clamped down as shown in the picture on Rockler's website.
How far do the feathers extend beyond the edge of the miter slot at maximum extension?
James L on Jul 4, 2015
Do the knobs lock the featherboard in the slot or just adjust the extension of the featherboard toward the wood?
Kenneth R on Nov 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The knobs do both simultaneously. They lock it in the slot & clamp the feather board at the desired distance from the fence.
is this 3/8 wide or deep ?
Gary H on Jul 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is 3/8” deep and 3/4” wide. It also has a lot of adjustments to fit many applications.
Does everything come with the featherboard to secure it to the table or is this separate?
Julian S on Apr 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Interesting question, because I just used mine today. I have a Ridgid 10 inch table saw, and this featherboard fits it perfectly. I bought it some time ago, but as far as I can remember, it came with everything you need to use it right out of the box. I have some featherboards that fit my Shopsmith, but they don't fit my table saw, hence my spending the money on one for my table saw. Money well spent for me. Good luck.
Does it work with the Bosch 4100 jobsite table saw?
Michael R on Apr 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It fits on my Bosch table but I’m not sure of the number. Works pretty well with the precision rip fence I have.
Is this device compatible with a DeWalt DWE7491rs table saw?
Wayne W on May 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This product till fit on any tool that has a standard 3/8" x 3/4" miter slot.
I cannot find my installation instructions. How does this thing install?
Jeff S on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Metal rods ride in miter slot on table surface. Featherboard sets on top and is held in place by screwing knobs into metal bars. Loosen knobs and, with piece of stock to be routed against fence on table table, snug featherboard up against stock to hold it against fence and tighten knobs to maintain featherboard pressure against stock. If using single featherboard, locate it on infeed side of router bit. If using on fence, bars should slide into slot on fence an featherboard should be adjusted to hold stock down against table.
What is the overall dimension of this featherboard?
A shopper on May 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 7" WIDE, 2 3/4" deep from the fins
