Product Details

This Super Kit consists of 4 x feather boards, 2 x spacer blocks and all the mounting hardware needed to either create four individual feather boards or two double stacked feather boards for use with tall stock cutting operations. When used as individual feather boards the face height/thickness is 20mm and when used as a double feather board with the spacer block the face height/thickness is 75mm.

Each feather board has Dual Slide Motion which allows you to quickly achieve the best angle for accurate setup on your workpiece whilst the unique pre-load tension design reduces dangerous kickback. Ergonomically designed knobs help prevent over tightening and provide non slip loosening, a unique feature to these feather boards.

The kit comes with eight all cast iron mitre bars, four for 3/4" channels and four for 5/8" channels; so you will always have the right size for the job. The mitre bars have a split rail construction to ensure maximum hold in the channels. These feather boards are the best and simplest we have ever used and will prove invaluable on any router table, table saw, or band saw. Highly recommended. ©

I've been looking about for some decent feather boards (my plywood boards always look rather "scratty") so when these arrived at less than half price I took the plunge.
They maybe plastic but the feathers are good quality and look as if they will last for many years. The fixing plates must cover the whole range of slots.
The instruction sheet is as usual these days rather vague.
To date I've used them on my table saw and with a bit of fudging on my Woodrat.
The first feather is set back from the rest by about 2mm and it is suggested that this should give the desired pressure. I found them to be far too stiff and used just 1mm of spring with very good results. It maybe that the feathers need breaking in, time will tell.
In summary a very useful addition to the workshop.

3-in-1 oil to the recue!
So I bought these featherboards when they were reduced recently. When they turned up I was rather dissapointed, as they did not fit nice and tight in the cheap t-track I'd ordererd from China. I was wondering if somehow I'd ordered an incompatible size of if the product was simply not that good. When I tightened the red plastic wing nuts up as tight as I dared, there was still a lot of movment in the track - enough in fact they they would slide up and down the track quite easily. I even considered - like one of the other reviewers - to try andglue some sort of strip to the slider side to make it wider.
Eventually it dawned on me to just try a little oil on the chamfer of the bolt heads that fits inside the spreader/slider. Hey-presto, they tightened up a dream and are the slider is now a perfect fit in my t-track. I think somehow that the chamfer on the bolt was not in fact spreading the slider and was instead biting into it and then pulling it upwards, rather than outwards...if that makes sense.
Just for reference, the internal size of the t-track I have is 19.3mm at the top edge, which is where the slider fits. The larger size spreader supplies with this set is a perfect fit.....with a drop of oil.

Bought this kit for 37 Gbp. Have now used them some times, and I can agre that the feather boards is quite stiff, a little softer woulden't hurt , but they do the job, but, the cause for only four stars in my opinion is the very low quality on the fixation rails !
In my Makita 2704 tablesaw, it is nearly impossible to fix the boards in the 3/4 rails. How ever hard You try to screw the fasteners, it is impossible to obtain a good fixation. In some point the whole featherbord come loose , and that is really bad.
Now I'm trying to manufacture better rails in aluminium, but that should not be necessary. Plastic is ok for many purposis, but in my opinion not for fastening rails
