    I’ve added the Jessem router table guides recently. Highly recommend over featherboards. Well worth the money. Here’s some more pics.

    That is a nice looking set up you have Doobie. I can see where the rollers would be a lot nicer than a feather board. We have power feeders on some of the sharper’s at the cabinet shop that makes everything easier.

    Man that looks like a great router table setup you’ve got going there. So you like the JessEm better than the feather boards?

    Those Jessem guides are amazing and I highly recommend them. They are offset by 5 degrees forcing the stock towards the fence and the adjustability of the downward force is a heck of a lot simpler and more reliable than any man made or third party manufactured featherboards I’ve ever used.

    Not long after they came out with those guides for the router table, they came out with table saw guides that are similar in design. Twice the price as the router ones, but they are sweet also.

    Looks like a glue-up.
    Gives a nice symetrical design on the sides. Could have routed slots in a block, but then they wouldn’t fan apart.
    I like it.

    just set the depth stop on the sliding miter saw and cut cut the slots. Cut the two sides off, rotated and glued it up. Works great.

    I have liked the router guides as well so far.



    @doobie
    , what pushed you to choose the complete Jessem setup over the Incra setup?

    I got my Jessem when that design first came out 10 years ago. There was a good deal on it at a woodworking show I was attending, so I pulled the trigger. The Incra was not that well known in Canada back then and also Jessem is a Canadian company. There’s a certain penchant to support one’s own native companies although it is not an overidding issue in itself for me. I look for quality, service and price in that order mostly. The Incra had this huge protruding bar that I couldn’t easily accomodate in my tight setup also if I recall.

    Nice use of the depth stop Brad! I can honestly say I’ve never had the need for that feature, but I have it nonetheless. I must be a hold over from the radial arm saw days.

    Was that with a Bosch miter saw Brad? Didn’t know they had a depth of cut setup like the Kapex has.

    aAn edge guide for sure, unless you need a plunge base. Then I’d say that. Dust control is futile for me. There’s no perfect solution to cover all the things a router can do.
