This featherboard can be used with T Track or by adding a piece of expanding T Track, in the slots of my table saw. The picture of my Thin Rip jig shows the idea of the expanding T Track that can be used for multiple jigs.

Nice featherboard. It would be nice to know a bit more…what kind of wood, how you cut it and anything else you might share.

Thanks Redoak49. The slots are cut at a 25 degree angle, and were cut on the table saw using my Table Saw Sled angle guides. I have about 5 different featherboards with different length feeathers for differing degrees of tension. Wood is whte pine with the slot cut parallel with the grain

Here’s a picture of Rocklers slot clamps.

Hope this helps

Well done. Wooden feather boards are woodworkers buddies.

Nice work, I like the adaptability for other applications you built into it.

I finally built one after many years of hearing how they work well here on LJ’s. Why did I wait so long?? LOL

This a great shop-built fixture and a nice addition to your shop.

Thanks Tony…it gives me a more consistent cut/rout job, plus prevents kickback :) when I remember to use it.


GREAT JOB :<))
