Magnetic Router Table Upgrade

By: Erich Lage
A simple way to hold a featherboard on your router table.

W229 006f03 My laminate-topped router table lacks a miter gauge slot. This is a problem when I want to use a featherboard for some precise milling. I’ve tried clamping a shop-made featherboard to the top, but often it would shift when in use. Recently, I received a magnetic featherboard as a gift. I love it and use it all the time at my table saw and jointer. Once it’s positioned, the large knobs on the top of the featherboard turn the magnets on and off. To use it on my router table, all it took was a piece of sheet metal clamped to the front of the table. Once my fence and board was in place, I positioned the featherboard properly against the board and turned on the magnets.
