Support-block featherboard

Shop-made accessory enjoys on-again, off-again attraction.

I didn't want to ruin my brand-new tablesaw fence by attaching permanent fixtures for featherboards. So I came up with this removable jig.

Sized to fit between the fence faces, the magnetic mounting block can be placed anywhere along the fence. Two spacers, each the thickness of the fence face, attach between the mounting block and the featherboard using 1/4-20 knobs that thread into nuts in the T-track. Between uses, the jig stores on the edge of my cast iron tablesaw wing.
