Good day

Not much to say, the pictures are saying it all.

The unit is connected to the rail.

I push it to the board to create some “bow” and lock it.

It pushes the board to the fence and at the same time, down to the table.

Lately, I replaced all the wing nuts with knobs for easier operation.

The example is made with melamine board but, the few last pics are with the “real one”, Oak, 1¼” thick.

Regards
niki

Nice setup Niki.
There must be a lot less resistance, without the friction of a featherboard.

Very nice Nike. Do you ever make anything besides Jigs. There great and keep them coming. But we’d also like to see some finished projects.

Thank you

Dick
The feeding is “rolling” and the adjustment is very easy, just push with one hand to “spring load” the bar and lock.
I think that it can be done also on the miter slot.

Karson
Well, from time to time I also make some furniture but being an amateur, without “delivery date”, gives me the benefit to stop in the middle of a project just to build a jig for easier and more accurate operation and usually I make jigs that I will use again and again so it’s worth it.
I’ll post also some projects.

Thanks
niki
