Featherboards can be used with the fence or on the router table and can be flipped for operations in either direction. The durable polymer retains its flex memory and will not mar your workpiece. The exclusive built-in setup feather makes setting the tension fast, easy, and repeatable. Slides quickly into 1/4 T-tracks, featured on all Bench Dog Tools fences, as well as most Rockler fences. Sold as a pair. Optional Miter Slot Adapter (sold separately) allows you to secure Feather-Loc to any 3/8 x 3/4 miter slot.
A featherboard is undoubtedly the most underrated router-table accessory of all time. When properly installed, its flexible fingers keep the workpiece pressed tightly against the router tabletop or router fence throughout the routing operation. The result is a dramatic increase in the accuracy, quality and safety of the cuts.
Now many woodworkers make their own featherboards from scrap lumber, but here’s a better, safer option: the Bench Dog 40-011 Feather-Loc Double Featherboard. This popular router-table accessory consists of not one, but two industrial-quality featherboards. The featherboards are made from a high-tech polymer and each one has 13 angled fingers that apply steady pressure that consistently produces cleaner cuts with less chance of kickback, chattering or lifting.
The featherboards slide into miter-gauge slots in the router table or fence, and are locked in place by tightening a pair of knobs. Note that Feather-Loc Featherboards can also be used on a table saw, shaper, bandsaw or any other woodworking machine with a miter gauge slot. -- Joseph Truini
