Club member Robert Erwin, of Tyler, Texas, has a method for securing a long featherboard on his table saw to prevent it from slipping. He cuts a shallow notch in the featherboard a few inches down from the feathers for a mating brace. The brace should be the same thickness as the featherboard and about 2 to 4 in. wide. Once he positions the featherboard, he puts one end of the brace into the notch, then clamps both the brace and featherboard to the table.
