Buy Hedgehog Spiral Featherboard

Free shipping on all Hedgehog Featherboard orders through Thursday, 2/8!

There is no other woodworking featherboard like the patent pending Hedgehog spiral featherboard. Other featherboards have two knobs which makes them slow to use and difficult to adjust. The Hedgehog has a single knob with a single pivot point for simple and fast adjustments.

From the video, it appears a regular right hand screw thread.  I think it is fine this way as any feather boards that I have ever built for miter slot use on my table saw were the same and never had a problem.  I think the spacing of the fingers and the relative flexibility of the plastic material are what makes this work.  Interesting and simple concept, but I don't see any real advantages over a traditional slotted featherboard for the price.

Shane,
do you know how well this fits in the groove on sliding table of a Hammer K3?
Thanks
Jack

@JSlovic

Jack, I know that they state that it will not work with metric miter slots. I believe the Hammer is metric, right?

The miter clamp is cast aluminum and CNC milled for tight tolerances and a precision fit.  It is designed to fit 3/4-inch wide miter slots. If you have a 5/8-inch or metric miter slot, the Hedgehog miter clamp will not fit.

I'd make this spring loaded (think of cutter head guard on a joiner) and make torque adjustable. Then no need to re-position it at all between cuts.
