Rating:
90% of 100

Featherboards can be used with the fence or on the router table and can be flipped for operations in either direction. The durable polymer retains its flex memory and will not mar your workpiece. The exclusive built-in setup feather makes setting the tension fast, easy, and repeatable.


Features:
  • Slides quickly into 1/4" T-tracks
  • Featured on all Bench Dog® Tools fences, as well as most Rockler fences
  • Optional Miter Slot Adapter (#27603, sold separately) allows you to secure Feather-Loc® to any 3/8" x 3/4" miter slot

A little expensive but worth it.
I bought these for my router table that I recently built. I've had a pair that I use on my table saw. Hold the work piece firmly against the fence.

work very well
I really like these. I was going to make my own, but at this price, it doesn't make a ton of cents. I bought 2 pairs. The design is simple and effective. they feel a little stiff, but work very well. they're easy to adjust. I had intended to stack 2 of these for a taller application, but the included bolts are too short. Easy fix with longer bolts. Pro tip. make sure your the tracks or slots are deep enough that the board sits flush and tight with the table surface. if there is a gab between the board and the table, when you push a work piece through, the feather board will be able to lift some on the business end, potentially enough to let 1/4" stock slide under. Hope that makes sense.

This is an item I haven’t seen before. It will keep narrow stock in place, and make many table saw cuts infinitely safer!

What kind of ordering info pertains to the fence blocks and t-rail(?) that the Feather-Locs are attached to as shown in the photo?
Philip B on Apr 28, 2016
Will these attach to Craftsman xr2424 fence for ripping?
Bernie on Sep 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You would need a t-track on your fence to use these
Do these fit the Rockler benchtop router table fence?
James M on Mar 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They do indeed. I use them with my Rockler table fence.
Will this fit the t-track system?
C A on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does fitbstandard T tracks
do these come with the fence attachment blocks, and track, as shown in the photo?
George B on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No they do not. Just the feather loc and the hardware to attach the feather loc to your fence fence track if it has one. That being said, they work great. Another bench dog item that I purchased was a pair of their push blocks.They are heavy duty and the best pair of push blocks that I have used. Hope I helped you out.
why is my feather lock not engaging to my table saw. It used to work fine, item not damaged, just stopped locking to table?
Bob P on Jul 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Based on your question, it sounds like your Feather-Loc has uses a 10-012 miter slot adaptor, which fits into your saw’s guide slot – see Rockler item# 29799. The picture included with your question shows the item# 27285, which is the vertical hold down setup. Assuming you’re using a miter slot adaptor, with the Feather-Loc lying flush atop tour table, check that the locking bolt is properly aligned. Disassemble the locking bolt from the open-slotted end of the guide bar – the end that looks like a tuning fork. You should see two small wings protruding from the conical surface of the bolt head – you can see one of these wings at Rockler online, type in item# 27603. Put the conical bolt back into the countersunk hole located on the bottom of the guide and turn the bolt so that the two small wings are aligned with the slot in the guide bar. Once the wings are aligned into the guide slot, the top of the conical bolt head should be seated about 1/16” below the guide bar bottom. If the wings aren’t aligned, the bolt head will be flush with the bottom of the guide bar. Tighten the wing nut – you should see the open-slotted end of the guide bar expand, and when installed on your saw, will lock into your table guide slot.
