Now I use a featherboard much more
So easy and convenient that I am using a featherboard on so many more cuts and getting better results. This kit will allow many shopbuilt jigs. Great addition to the shop.

Magswitch starter kit nice and magnets strong. Rockler didn't carry vertical add on in store so had to go elsewhere to purchase that. Only thing I'll have to figure out is where to keep the small parts from the packages (when not using that option) so I'll know where they are and what they go to.

It's a great system
I was slow to acquire the Magswitch due to it's price, but I bought it and a set of accessories. I needed it mainly for my jointer so that I could edge joint stock with the face held against the fence. The jointer has no miter slots, so the magswitch was the answer. I'm very happy with it.

These switchable magnets are amazing for their holding strength. Ideal for moving from one jig to another. I would strongly recommend this system.

It's a versatile tool, that has more than 1 use. It can be used as a featherboard, or use the magblocks separately when adjusting fences with calipers, many uses!

I am one of those folks who thought I know my tools. Even after 25 years of safely using the same table saw I accidentally cut a small portion of my left thumb off so I was looking for a hold down attachment for my table saw that was easy to use and sturdy.
