    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.

          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.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
