ROUTING
USING
THE FEATHER
BOARDS
Separately purchased feather boards can be used on both
171.264630 and 171.264640 Professional Router Tables
[ AWARNING I
• The feather boards are an aid in holding
the workpiece in position when routing
on a router table.
• They are NOT intended to hold the workpiece
in place alone when the workpiece is in
contact with the bit, or at any other time
when the bit is turning.
• NEVER let go of the workpiece when routing
using the feather boards until the cut has been
completed and the workpiece is completely
clear of the bit.
The following instructions describe how to mount the
feather boards on the in-feed side of the router table:
1.
Loosen the knobs holding the feather board to
the fence and raise it up as high as it will go as
shown in the Figure 32. Lightly tighten knobs.

Loosen the knobs holding the feather board in
position on the muter table and move it outward
as far as it will go as shown in Figure 32.
Place the workpiece on the router table so that it
is squarely against the fence.
Loosen knobs on the fence feather board
and move the feather board toward the guard
(center of the router table).
Position the feather board next to the guard,
being sure that the guard is free to rotate up
and down in the normal manner.
