Woodcraft has added a brand-new safety accessory for the table saw, made by the Canadian-based JessEm® Tool Company, to its line of products. Clear-Cut TS™ Precision Stock Guides for Table Saws are the ultimate hold-down on the table saw. Multiple featherboards are required to simultaneously hold down and guide material accurately against a table saw fence.
I'm throwing my feather boards away!
My first step into the JessEm line was the purchase of JessEm Mast-R-LiftI II. It is rock solid and built like a tank. So when JessEm came out with these guides that also replace my feather boards on my router table, I was more than interested. Before I purchased these I opened the box @ Woodcraft store just to check them out, these things are heavy duty! The finish is great and just like my lift you can just tell when you pick some things up its a quality product and its made to last forever. (Something I have learned about things made in Canada--The stuff last forever!) These guides work great, and the 5 degrees is just enough to suck the stock against the fence and still make stock feel very secure even without a feather board. I also like that JessEm has made these very easy to adjust without any tool of any kind and they can even stay on my fence when I'm not using them by adjusting one of the thumb knobs. Works great would purchase again in a heartbeat...
After getting a router and table for Christmas, I found that I wasn't as confidently skillful a I thought I was. Although I had to make some small modifications with my fence (it doesn't have a t-slot rail), it fit on easily and worked perfectly. It really does grip and guide stock tight against the fence, and feels so much more secure than featherboards. The salesfolk at our local Colorado Springs Woodcraft store were knowledgeable and extremely helpful in helping me figure out a solution, not only for hassle-free routing, but also clamping. I'll be going back to that store again and again in the future. 5 stars for the staff as well!
I have the Incra TS/LS with the router fence system and these hold downs fit perfectly into the fence slot. Easy to put on and remove from the fence. Also the 5 degree angle on the one way rollers works as described for keeping the stock pulled toward the fence while holding it down on the table. A little pricey but the engineering is there. Rugged with nicely knurled tightening knobs.
