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
The function and size are the same, but the performance is not. The magnets in the yellow Magswitch featherboard are 2 X's bigger than the magnets in the Ridgid version. The Ridgid version does not stay in place and is not recommended.

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
Hi William, There have not been any changes to this model of the feather board. Thanks for your interest. Greg

Does this featherboard include hardware for attaching to the aluminum fence of the Ridgid R4512 cast iron top table saw?

Asked by: McJoe
No it does not. What you see in the image is what you get. The magnets will not work on aluminum.

MagSwitch Plastic Featherboard is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 67.

I thought I found a bargain in this tool--a genuine magswitch featherboard for $5 less than the yellow "Magswitch" branded featherboards. I was wrong. I should have read the negative reviews before purchasing this. They're all true. This Ridgid featherboard is junk compared to a genuine Magswitch featherboard. Apparently Ridgid thought they could save money and boost profits by cutting the size of the magnet in half. They're fools. (See photo for side by side comparison) The Magswitch version does not budge once I lock it to the table. The Ridgid version somewhat easily moves out of position. Realistically, worrying about or dealing with a featherboard moving once you've started cutting a piece of wood completely negates the point in using a featherboard. And the added distraction just makes such work much more dangerous. There's no point in paying $35 for the cut-rate Ridgid version that slides around a table when you can get the Magswitch version for only $5 more. It's just plain stupid for Ridgid to make a junk version with magnets that are half as powerful as those in the real tool.

The magnet is much smaller and the overall weight is much less than the one I bought a just a couple of years ago. My old one broke a feather before giving up. That's why I bought a second one. The new one is moved when any healthy warp comes along. So if you only ever, ever work with FAS surfaced 2 sides or better you might be ok but rough cut lumber you'll re-position the featherboard regularly. This new and improved version doesn't help me

I returned the RIDGID MagSwitch Plastic Featherboard because it did not work on my new RIDGID table saw. I tried my big magnet on the table saw and it too doesn't stick so I'm guessing it must be aluminum. Why would RIDGID make a magswitch featherboard that doesn't work on their table saw??
