If you accidentally hit your blade with this featherboard it won't shatter or explode in your face. This not only increases your safety but it also helps protect your equipment's longevity.
You can apply lots of pressure or a little pressure depending on what you're doing EVEN WHEN working with soft woods!
You don't need a left and a right featherboard. The FeatherPro is reversible by simply flipping it over and reversing hardware. You can also use it in the vertical position, not just horizontal.
How is this better than the featherboards I make myself?
The FeatherPro was specifically designed to have a huge mechanical advantage over traditional wood and plastic featherboards. On average, it has 5X the kickback protection of these types of boards. That's a difference between 15 lbs VS 75 lbs of protection. That's a safety innovation advantage that the featherboard has never seen before. And that's just the beginning. The performance advantages over traditional boards is off the charts.
The Feathers look soft - how often will I have to replace them?
The manufacturer has ran thousands of rough linear board feet through a single set of feathers during testing. 10,000 linear board feet of rough particle board in fact. By the end there was minimal wear on the feathers. They will not need replacement often. Most common reason for replacement is running the feathers into a blade (although even that won't always require replacement). The feathers are very durable.
Is there a magnetic version?
Will it fit my table?
The FeatherPro fits any table with a 3/8" - 3/4" miter slot. When you receive your product you'll find that the hardware includes aluminum miter track bars. During our testing we found this to be one of the most common sizes to use.
