Combination Machine Accessories FeatherPRO Featherboard Keep stock tight against a saw or router fence for safer and cleaner ripping and routing. Featherboards are simple and from a safety point of view, indispensable. FeatherPRO is an innovative design that addresses shortcomings found in the vast majority of featherboards.

UJK Technology Bandsaw Buddy Everyone needs a buddy in their workshop Truing a bandsaw fence to the blade is a tricky operation. This unique tool is the simplest and most accurate way to set that alignment. The Buddy has two rare earth magnets that hold it securely to the blade. At 250mm long it is easy to spot any discrepancy. If you’re cutting veneers or thin boards, there is a scale at the tip to aid the setup for this. Along its length, there are a series of holes at 12.5mm intervals. This allows the Buddy to be used to draw arcs or circles in 25mm steps from 75mm to 400mm. A great asset when marking curves or cutting bowl blanks. Accurately machined from anodised aluminium, you can even use it as a straight edge.

Instead of rigid feathers these use closed cell Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foam. This material is very tough, highly flexible, resilient and incredibly durable. The secret of the feather’s effectiveness lies in their shape. It ensures constant even pressure for smooth feeding, at the same time virtually eliminating kickback. FeatherPRO offers other advantages; the foam will not mark or scratch, nor will it damage cutting edges. The high-density foam absorbs vibration to minimize chatter for a cleaner cut. FeatherPRO feathers are thicker and have greater surface contact area, which disperses the pressure over a wider area. The feathers are a replaceable insert and are reversible by simply flipping the insert over. The main body is a high grade polymer moulding and includes a pair of standard 19mm (3/4”) aluminium clamp rails that fit in the mitre slots of table saws or router tables, and two large locking knobs. Overall size: 19mm x 220mm x 200mm, with 145mm of travel. An optional Ultra light Feather offers greater control and feedback when feeding more delicate workpieces.

The GuidePRO is a unique bandsaw accessory, it applies even and constant pressure over the full height of a tall workpiece. Comprising three parts; a large moulded handle, a 150mm tall silicone rubber feather and a detachable metal base, GuidePRO is simplicity itself to set up. The base has a handy scale and its square ends provide a quick reference for making sure the fence is square to the saw table. GuidePRO fits into standard 9.5 x 19mm (3/8 x ¾) mitre slots between 50 to 200mm from the blade. The device attaches to your bandsaw’s mitre slot with a cam style lock on the base. With the cam inserted in the mitre slot, a twist secures the jig. Slide the handle and feather over against a workpiece, pressing the thumb lever locks GuidePRO into place and sets the amount of pressure. The flexible feather dampens vibration and provides consistent even pressure over the full height. Installed and locked about 6mm in front of the blade, GuidePRO provides all the necessary force against the fence, leaving both hands to feed the wood into the blade.

For small or delicate cuts.

Accidents do happen. Luckily, if the FeatherPRO feathers suffer damage, they are easy to replace, without having to replace the entire featherboard. Simply swap the damaged feathers for these replacements.

The Ultralight feathers offer a different touch to the FeatherPRO. These offer a lighter pressure without any loss in safety. These are better for use with smaller workpieces or taking delicate cuts where a better feel for the work is desirable. Ultralight feathers give better feedback when taking highly sensitive cuts. This is the best option for a double stack FeatherPRO setup.
