I didn’t put a miter track in my adjustable height work table because I use it for other things besides routing. So, I dreamed up this idea of making an adjustable feather board jig that I can adjust as needed. In fact, my table has dual routers so I can use it on either end. :-)
I didn’t have the material on hand I wanted to use, so I wound up with a piece of maple that was narrower than my original plan. It doesn’t matter. It works just fine. I also made the jig to accept two feather boards. Next trip to Rockler, I will pick up another one.
The T track allows the featherboard to be positioned as needed. Adding a second featherboard will help a lot. In order for the toilet bowl flange T bolt to work on the feather board, I bored a slight recess in the bottom of the feather board. So far, I haven’t had any problems with the bolt turning. If it does, i will get the Liquid Nails after it. :-)
I think this is going to be pretty handy.
Hope you like it.
Here are my original drawings. Use them if you like.
