Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jbernard0812 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by gardengirl Doesn't work on the Rigid table saw
I purchased this Rigid featherboard for my new Rigid table saw, however, since it attaches magnetically it won't 'stick' on the Rigid saw (which is cast aluminum). It works great on Craftsman (or any cast iron or steel table top) but not on Rigid table saw.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DrHalfstep Sadly disappointed
I was excited to purchase a Magswitch when I first encountered one when subbing for a shop class. I was disappointed when I purchased and tried one to discover that my table saw did not have a magnetic surface so it would not work. I wish they had warned me to test the saw before I ordered the featherboard.

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.

Magnets aren't quite strong enough to keep the tool where you want it. It may work ok for very light weight material but for what I'm doing it just won't do the job.

They seem a little cheap compared to others I have but they seem to work fine.

I'm very happy with this accessory. It allows me to focus more on the accuracy of my cut when I am ripping boards. The magnets are very strong. What a great device!
