Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does a great job but... I just put this on my saw today to use for the first time. I have to say it holds well to the cast iron top. The handles are easy to turn to lock the featherboard down. So easy in fact that they can be twisted with one finger, both to lock it down and release the magnets. That is why I gave it 4 star instead of 5. Feels almost unsafe to me for it to unlock so effortlessly. April 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Feather board was cheaper then others on the market. Works great and I would buy again. To bad its not in the store. It's online only. March 31, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Fair at best The magnets don't hold to the table well enough. They can slide sideways, unlike a clamped feather board. Also the knobs are either vibrating open or are easily opened by light touch. Not as good as I'd hoped for. March 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not much good if you wax your table saw top. I have one from when they first came out. I'm not sure if the design has changed - some reviews are indicating that the magnets are weaker now. I like to take care of my table saw top - a Ridgid TS3650 - so I try to keep paste wax on it. The wax keeps it from rusting, and the wood just glides over it. Unfortunately, the fingerboard won't hold very well to the waxed top. I'll be getting a model that uses the miter slots. If you don't wax the top, I'd recommend it for its ease of use, though. August 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good pruduct good value but wish magnets didn,t turn off so easy. If your hand even brushes up against the knobs it release the magnet. February 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RIDGID MagSwitch Plastic Featherboard Great safety device that is easy to use. Extremely easy to use. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 9, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! February 17, 2011
