The Magswitch MagFence Combo Kit works as an auxiliary fence or hold-in on any steel or cast-iron surface.
This kit comes with a base, two turn-on- and-off magnetic MagJigs, a Dual-Roller Guide for holding stock flat against a fence or tabletop, and a MagFence Resaw Guide for resawing on a bandsaw. The MagJigs fit into two holes on the base, and when you turn their knobs a quarter-turn they lock onto the surface with incredible strength. I used the MagFence kit in every application where I might need a helping hand: to hold stock against the fences on my tablesaw, jointer, and shaper; to hold down boards while face-jointing on my jointer; and to hold workpieces squarely on my drill press. Never a problem. I even used two of the Resaw Guides, with their 7-1/2° tapered faces on each side of the blade, to sandwich my board while resawing on my bandsaw, and still had 15° of steering room to counter blade drift. And for those times when the Mag- Fence might not work, I can take the MagJigs out and use them in other shopmade jigs, such a dust-hose holder on my oscillating spindle sander. —Tested by Randy Zimmerman
