    I like this type from Woodcraft. http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?familyid=1651 Made for standard slot but I take the base piece off and use a T bolt on my router table besides the standard base for my table saw.

      To anybody using the HF f.boards, do you need a slot adapter like you do with the bench dogs? At an additional $10 the BDog units are pricey. Not to mention that after driving a little more than an hour to get to Woodcraft I get home to find out that that I need this adapter - grrrr! The HF store is immediately beside Woodcraft - imagine the possibilities for emptying a wallet and a checkbook all in the same day.

        ironhat, the slot adapter comes with the HF feather board.

          Can we attach a featherboard that has a Tslot adapter directly on the Tslot of the fence. Or would it be better to attach a wood face board first and then clamp a featherboard to it.

            You could attach a featherboard directly to the fence with some 1/4" hex head bolts but you'd be very limited in the thickness of wood you could utilize the featherboard on. Your second idea is what I did.

              I use one of these on the TS fence and it works OK. It came with a bunch of 1/2" thick spacers so you can stand it off the fence a ways and get pressure out near the blade.

              I just picked up at the WW Show a MagSwitch Pro featherboard(upper left corner in photo). This has a Horz. and Vert. featherboard on it and with the 2 magnets (man they are super strong let me tell you) it looks like it will be a winner.



              Their brochure even shows a MagSwitch being used to lift a TS-3650 completely off the ground (don't try this at home )


              Ya gotta wonder though, cause they show one of their MagSwitches being used to steady the fence on a TS-3650, and since the fence clamps to BOTH rails it is not going to move if properly adjusted. Other styles of fences may have theis problem, but I don't see it on the TS-3650.
