The Woodpeckers Variable Pressure Feather Board is the first feather board whose pressure can be adjusted without moving - feather boards reduce the possibility of dangerous kick-back by keeping your workpiece against the guide fence and down on the table.

Feathe rboards are an invaluable tool to control stock when routing, shaping, ripping and re-sawing. When properly installed, 

One important part of proper installation is setting its position just right for effective pressure. Up until now that required trial-and-error positioning of the feather board. Each time knobs have to be loosened and the device adjusted and then try it one more time. It isn't unusual to have to repeat this process two or three times to get the pressure just right.

Not anymore! Woodpeckers Variable Pressure Feather Board has a built in adjustment plate that increases or reduces holding pressure with a very simple adjustment. There's absolutely no need to change the feather board's position to change the pressure.

This new American made feather board is designed for any application that requires control of wood position as it's being fed along a fence or on a table. It can attach to any 1/4" T-track with the standard included hardware. Optional hardware is available for attachment to standard 3/4 x 3/8 miter channels as well.

For Incra fences, only recommended for use on Hi-Rise Fence Cap.

    Good product.

    A lot of featherboard for the money. The tension adjust is a neat feature. Although all plastic construction (bolts aside), feels very robust and durable. I find they perform pretty well.
    Of course, all the fixings are imperial sizes, so I bought these expecting to have to adapt them to my setup - which I have. Getting creative with the grinder, metric bolts/taps and Aruldite has got me up and running. I had to grind the bolt heads (which are sized to run in 1/4" track) into shape to fit my slot-6 aluminium extrusion fence. Took about ten minutes. For the horizontal featherboard, to have it run in my 3/4" mitre channel, I removed the imperial bolts and the nut from the knobs, inserted an M6 bolt into the knob (not quite snug so epoxied in place) that screws into a mitre channel slider. Half hour of fettling in all and we were off.
    Don't let this put you off. The actual featherboards work great. If you use 1/4" track in your fence or use the 1/4+3/4" combo track you'd be able to use these straight away.
    Given 4 stars instead of 5, purely based on my view that for the money, a 3/4" mitre channel fixing option could be included in the pack. I was lucky enough to have the bits to sort it. If you didn't, you'd be looking at another 20 quid outlay. Diminishes the products value for money slightly.
    Service from Wood Workers Workshop outstanding as always.

    Best featherboards I have ever purchased.

    These are a high quality product. The plastic material is very well finished and very strong. The tension adjustability is a great feature, but for me the key feature are the curved fingers which make these by far the best featherboards I have ever used. They make pushing the workpiece under them much smoother.
