Good day

Cabinetman (yes, our good ‘oll Cabinetman) is responsible for this one. After he saw the “Feather Rollers”, he asked me “What about Fence-mounted Hold-down roller”, I found the idea to be very good, did not waste any time and made it.

The roller(s) is not only holding the workpiece down to the table but also, pushing and keeps it pressed to the fence. I use it together with the “Feather rollers” and I fill very relaxed when I’m cutting those long heavy Oak boards.

Sorry for the 4 mm, it’s 5/32”...

Regards
niki

A very good feature. I like the idea of the slight angle of the rollers.

Thank you all for your kind word

Dick
When I made the prototype of the “Feeder Rollers”, I installed the roller straight but, it was not exactly parallel to the board (my bad skills) and I noticed that the board is pushed up from the table so, I angled it down and not only that it solved the problem but, the result was that the board was pushed down to the table and I liked it and made the same with the Hold-down rollers…some things you learn by mistake…

The angle is, as I measured, around 2~3°

Thanks
