Wheels are cheep slippery plastic
Overall good idea and good design. But it looks like someone over time cheapened these more and more, the wheels should be made out of rubber or material that would grip the board and pull it toward the fence and the old ones were made like that and worked great. Now the wheels are made out of cheep yellow nylon, no grip at all and very slippery plastic (you can slide the board away from the fence with no effort at all) they still provide downward force OK but do not pull the board towards the fence as they should. Don't waste your money, just use good feather board instead works just as good.
Essential safety accessory
I have used these since the mid-90's, on different brands of table saws, with consistently good results. It's important to install them properly, but they really do a good job holding materials down against the table, and firmly against the fence.
It took me a while to really appreciate these Board Buddies. I find they really shine when cutting large pieces of wood that can't be secured with feather boards. If you don't have an assistant, these Board Buddies allow you to cut 4x8 sections of plywood relatively safely and accurately. They apply pressure downward while pulling the wood towards the fence, so I have no fear of accurately cutting large sheets unassisted. They really do serve as second set of hands.
Great safety device for long boards
This is a great safety device. I use it when ripping long narrow boards as it keeps the work up against the fence and stops it from lifting. Greatly reduces the chance of kick-back. I have installed mine on the top of my Incra fence - works well with some of the spare Incra fittings that came with my TS-LS fence.
Works well but takes some tinkering
Disappointed in the threading in the aluminum housing. Had to disassemble and reassemble to get full extention.
