JessEm Paralign Feather Board (Double Pack)
high-quality feather boards offer fast setups and excellent control over the
hold down pressure to improve the consistency of your work.
They attach quickly to fences with 1/4"
T-slots and also include fittings for installation in the standard 3/4"
miter slots of your router table and table saw.
Paralign Double Pack includes hardware for stacking both feather boards
together, perfect for controlling taller panels on a router table or when
resawing at the band saw.
feather boards have two unique features that offer much quicker setups than
the two-piece design keeps the feather board surface aligned parallel to the
lumber as you adjust the hold down pressure, plus you can also move the feather
board along the length of the fence while maintaining the desired pressure
the first feather is shorter than the rest and serves as a setting gauge.
Simply lower the first feather into contact
with the lumber and tighten the knobs - the remaining longer feathers are
automatically set to a height that provides even pressure to the work
installed directly on INCRA LS system fences, the Paralign Feather Boards will
allow up to 1" thick lumber to pass beneath them.
Adding a shop-made sub fence that incorporates a length of T-Track at a
higher height allows virtually unlimited lumber thickness capacity.
When mounted in a miter slot, their horizontal reach is adjustable from 3/4" to 4-3/4" from the miter slot's centerline, and reversing the feathers in the body produces a reach of 4-1/2" to 8-1/2". When stacked together, the feathers' top edges are about 1-5/8" above the table surface.
