I had become frustrated with my wooden, shop-made feather boards. I could never get the length of the “feathers” or the spacing/gaps between them to be just right for the type and thickness of wood being used. They were either too stiff or too weak. Knowing I was going to be ripping a considerable amount of thin stock, I wanted something safer, so I decided to give Harbor Freight a try.
I’ve used this feather board every day for the past month – mainly on my TS but also for some operations on the router table. It has performed flawlessly. I was a little concerned about the durability of the plastic wedges that ride in the mitre track, but I was pleased to discover that I don’t have to tighten the T-bolts excessively to secure the feather board in position.
I’m not sure if I’ll ever use the angle finder, but for the $4 I spent on the product, I don’t need to use that feature to understand that this product at this price represents tremendous value to me.
