Here is a sliding featherboard for My rigid 3650 tablesaw . Its got 1 1/2 inch knobs . It rides in the stock t slots on the fence and for speed I used Rockler fast cam levers . Best part is it is reversible for either side use and has an integral pencil caddy ! I hope this helps My L J family !

the pencil holder is a nice touch. With my Craftsman circa 1981 fence I’d have to get a new fence to add a multi-featured feather board like yours.

Thanks for the post I have the same saw. What did you use for “bolts” that run in the TS T-Slot?

love the pencil caddy, Pop! Favoriting so I might remember once I’m ready for a featherboard :)
