A Magswitch featherboard costs $60 or so. This kind of versatile featherboard can be had for under $15…if you have a scrap piece of board around (who doesn’t?) and some spare time in your shop.
The secret is in the pair of handle magnets (100 lb which is about $6 – 8 each): use them with a notched featherboard. Pull the magnets sideway and they come off easily.
