Rating:
90% of 100
The Vertical Featherboard Attachment With Risers tool is for use with the Magswitch Pro Table Featherboard (#39194, sold separately) and Magswitch Workholding System (# 38007, sold separately). When attached to the Pro Table Featherboard or Workholding System, the Vertical Featherboard Attachment can be mounted in a vertical position from the top for pressure down on the material at the same time the horizontal featherboard is holding the material against the fence.

Features:
  • When set up in the stacked position using the risers, you get dual featherboard hold on the same horizontal plane - ideal for tall material.
  • This tool helps protect against kickbacks on vertical and horizontal plane.
  • Magswitch featherboards feature the core advantages of Magswitch including fast, strong set up anywhere on a steel table or cast Iron fence.
  • Suitable for use on table saws, jointer tables, band saws, shaper tables and any other ferromagnetic woodworking apparatus.

Magswitch and accessories
What an awesome product. I got this Magswitch Vertical Featherboard Attachment along with the Magswitch starter kit. Together, this holds down my work pieces perfectly. A bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Great tool
Can't say enough about it. Could use it many places in my shop, but chief demand is at the jointer where nothing else would do.
Great tool.

Works Well
Works well, just not as much strength if you’re magnets are over the miter gauge track. Keeps my work firmly against the fence and firmly on the cast iron.

Did a lot of research for feather boards that would fit my table saw. Magswitch is about as versatile as it gets.

what is actually included? The pictures show alot of materials.......the description just says the featherboard. What is needed to get the vertical setup they show?
bryan g on May 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question and looks like everything shown is included. I have requested Rockler update the what's included section so it is clear for others in the future.
Can I use this on a non-ferromagnetic table saw?
Diywood F on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Basic answer - Probably not or if at all, probably not very well. The longer answer to this question is: A basic definition of a ferromagnetic item is a "strong metal" or an item that has magnetic properties. The opposite then would be non-ferromagnetic items are "weak metals" or metals that do not have magnetic properties. Depending on the manufacture of the table and quality of the material used to manufacture it, it is hard to know for sure an answer of yes or no. As an example, some "stainless steel" is not magnetic however some different quality "stainless steel" will hold a magnet. The best way to determine if your particular table saw will work with this featherboard, before deciding to purchase this, or other magnetic accessories would be to see if you put a magnet on your table if it seems to hold strong, weak or not at all. (strong then it would probably work, weak probably not.
Does this work with starter kit and pro?
jim s on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This does work with the Magswitch Workholding System starter kit and Magswitch Pro Table Featherboard. There are some 45 degree pieces in this Magswitch Verticle Featherboard Attachment that allow you to attach a number of different components to each other as well as risers so you have a variety of configurations depending on what you want to hold down. This Vertical set actually makes a lot of the other components of the system work together. You can also use it as a stand alone featherboard system depending on the T-slots you have on your base table. (Router table, Shaper table, Sanding table etc.) The Magswitch Workholding System Starter Kit is the key component on a steel or cast table though so you can add pieces as your needs or budget allows.
