I am a victim :'(, too, and your photo reminds me that I still have three online/special orders waiting for me to pick up! [eek]

It is a blessing in disguise that I don't live too close to the store (half an hour drive in city traffic) ....

Hi Mario,

What is on top of the box ?  Featherboard ?

I have the guides on my LaGuna Fusion.  Really like them.

They are Mag Switch magnets. If you look at the video I posted above you will see their use.

Took 10 minutes to install :)

That's unbelievably efficient!

JessEm should appoint you as one of their honourary Installation/Assembly consultants.

By the way, I keep a stack of gift cards or access cards (but not credit cards because they are embossed) nearby. Sometimes, I set the front guide and lock the fence, forgetting about the rear guide. Or, with the blade guard in place, setting the rear guide might require moving the fence far to slip in the stock. Instead, I use a stack of cards the same or close to the same thickness of the stock to set the guide I miss.

I already had a strip of 70mm ply, just have to make the holes for the magnets and screw everything together.

The 20mm Mag-Jig 95lbs I found the 30mm to be a bit too bulky.

The magnets are quite pricey, but they are a great helper.

The featherboards are best mounted with one 20mm and one 30mm magnets. Unlike those used with the mitre slots, these can be positioned anywhere on the table.

If you wax your saw table top, this application is not suitable for you.

I have an advantage in that most of my work is commercial, I use Mag Switch 400 and 600 series magnets as feather boards, usually just the magnet against the work.  These Do Not move.
