Feather Guard Router Table Guard

Using the Feather Guard Router Table GuardThe new Feather Guard from Sommerfeld Tools, $24.90, is a two-for-one deal. It serves as both a feather board and a bit guard. It works great for jobs like raised panels, effectively covering even massive horizontal panel raisers. And instead of setting my table up with two feather boards, one on the infeed side and one on the outfeed side, I could do it all in one setup.


Using the Feather Guard Router Table GuardThe unique feather design provides plenty of down pressure. I had to rob a couple of bolts from another jig to mount the Featherboard on my router table, which uses 1/4-20 bolts in its T-track. The fasteners that came with the Featherguard didn’t work.

    My purchase of a Sommerfeld feather guard is one of those that should have been made way earlier. For making raised panels there is no better way to insure pressure either down or into the fence. Light cuts and this feather guard and I noticed a good deal less sanding.
