Featherboards are simple and from a safety point of view indispensable. FeatherPRO is an innovative design that addresses shortcomings found in the vast majority of featherboards.
Instead of rigid feathers, these use closed cell Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foam. This material is very tough, highly flexible, resilient and incredibly durable. The secret of the feather’s effectiveness lies in their shape. It ensures constant even pressure for smooth feeding, at the same time virtually eliminating kickback. FeatherPRO offers other advantages; the foam will not mark or scratch, nor will it damage cutting edges. The high density foam absorbs vibration to minimise chatter for a cleaner cut. FeatherPRO feathers are thicker and have greater surface contact area, which disperses the pressure over a wider area. The feathers are a replaceable insert and are reversible simply by flipping the insert over.
The main body is a high grade polymer moulding and includes a pair of standard 19mm (3/4") aluminium clamp rails that fit into the mitre slots of table saws or router tables and two large locking knobs. Overall size: 19mm x 220mm x 200mm, with 145mm of travel
An optional Ultralight Feather offers greater control and feedback when feeding more delicate workpieces.
