Is this Mag switch sold by Home Depot, under the brand of Ridgid, the same as the Universal Featherboard manufactured by Magswitch company?

They seem similar except for color and the Magswitch company lists holding power of magnets.
Asked by: Yojoe
They seem very similar but the Ridgid one seems to be a little looser.

From the reviews I have been reading there was a change in the magnets used to hold the feather board down to the machine's work surface. Is the currently marketed product using the weaker magnets?
Asked by: William
This is the review I submitted about 3 years ago: "I just received it yesterday and tried it immediately. It could be a nice product but it is not. The item is smallish and the magnets are too weak. This item is not suitable for general woodworking. I would recommend it, but only for light duty work like model-making. It is too bad - the design has potential. "

The first one of these featherboards I borrowed from a friend and was so impressed that I recently (2/16) bought my own only to sadly learn that Rigid had made the magnets smaller and weaker. This new design was not strong enough to hold the board being cut and I returned the tool. Why would Rigid do such a silly thing??

It looses one star because it's a bit expensive, and must be ordered on line. I like it enough that I choose one as a gift for a woodworker buddy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same as the original one I purchased. I purchased a Ridgid magnetic featherboard several years ago. It has excellent holding power and is extremely difficult to move by hand once locked down. Since the one I purchased is the only one Ridgid sells and looks similar, I made the assumption they were the same unit. I was wrong. The new one has a thinner spine and much weaker magnets. Not sure why, but this won't work in my shop. I can push the featherboard across the table with one hand fairly easily. It's getting returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secure and simple I used this featherboard to rip a series of thin boards on my craftsman table saw and it worked great. The twisting knobs on the top move freely and one-handed use is possible. The magnets make this a very versatile tool that does not have to rely on the miter gauge slot. I was initially concerned about getting this square to the blade but after using it this wasn't an issue at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product at a Great Price This is my second one of these. The first is the MagSwitch brand name. The same thing, but for a lot more money. I now use one on the infeed as well as outfeed side of my jointer. They really hold and are reversible to allow for different directions of feed depending on the machine. Don't give it a negative rating because you don't have a metal table surface. It's a magnet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible I love this feather board. I have tried to displace it while using it, just to see if I could. But, I could not move it at all. Super easy to use, too, with just 2 switches for the magnets. I have tried using other feather boards (ones that clamp into the miter slot and other variations) but I have never used one that is as steady and applies as much pressure as this one.
