poor design on a good product
As you see in the photo this is shaped like a piano. Not having the slide bars parallel allows the tool to be turned over 35 degrees in either direction; GREAT when I want to rip a board at an angle to the blade! But a REAL pain in the neck when I try to adjust it for board width because one bolt has to slide sideways (and around the curve) on the featherboard while at the same time sliding lengthways in the clamp bar. A real knucklehead design. However once I FINALLY get the thing at the correct width AND straight with blade is does a fine job. So one star for usefulness, zero star for a well thought out design, zero star for ease of use, zero star for happy with the overall product, and one star for working well.
Does what it is supposed to do.
Ripping long boards and making bevel cuts on table saw. Couldn't have done it without the feather board.
Great Product - Great Customer Support
Bought the product after using many other commercial and home-made featherboards. This is by far the best I've used. It's very adjustable; easy to use; and gives a safe/secure hold on piece being routed or sawn. While nearly new I set it incorrectly (too far back from blade) and had a kickback that broke two teeth off the featherboard. Sent Milescraft a query about buying a replacement part and they sent a new one gratis. Amazing customer support! This tool really is nice and works well.
Great gadget-better than homemade!
Could be better.
Very good idea but poor craftsmanship. Miter Bars have to filed inside for smooth moving-adjustment.
This featherboard had greatly improved the accuracy of my router table and the saftey of my table saw.
Could be better.
Model #1407 DUAL / TANDEM Very good idea but poor craftsmanship. Included Miter bars had to be filed (inside of groves) to move in smoothly.
easy to use and solid
