I have use a pair of KREG feather boards for a few years now and parts of them have cracked and or broken off. Needless to say I was not happy… BUT I ned to get at least a couple more ..

Does anyone have any favorites? What would you get?

The Magswitches work great. They are also available on Amazon.

I love the magswitch featherboard but the Harbor Freight one isn’t too bad, especially for $7 minus 20% coupon. It has a silly little angle finder that I cannot find a use for but if you ignore that, it looks very similar in design to the Kreg one and you won’t cry if it breaks, which mine hasn’t shown any sign of.

BTW, I bought my magswitch off of ebay for cheap. Not sure if this is the same guy I bought mine from but $20 is a great price.

Edit: just noticed that they’ll add $11 of shipping so may not as great a price after all.

Have your say...
