Featherboards are a great tool for holding your stock and preventing kickback, but they do have their limitations. The JessEm Clear-Cut Stock Guides can overcome these limitations. This set includes one infeed roller and one outfeed roller, which are mounted on a 5° angle effectively steering your stock towards your fence. This angle placement aids in holding the stock with more when it tried to move against the direction of the feed for safer, smoother, and more precise cuts.

Actually, the rollers are one direction and that is what stops kickback with the proper amount of pressure.

The 5 degree angle set of the rollers directs the material against the fence.

Unless you are ripping plywood or other wide stock, they are a semi dangerous solution for table saws. They get in the way and force you to monkey around with hand/push stick placement and you near them.

The router ones can put dangerous stress on the router bit if you use them with a bearing that's proud of the fence.

Overall, these solutions are not good.

These are great, and a must have... if you cannot make your own. It's actually really easy to do.

Then again, I prefer to make better versions of costly accessories. You can make these, as well as an auto-feed assembly, for less than the price of this sale price. But for myself, and those like me, we make tools and accessories for the joy of it rather than cost. But it is a great perk to save a ton of money on these (extremely overpriced) items for woodworking.

The internet is full of ideas. So if you really want these "Must have accessories" but the $80 (half the price of say, a Bosch 1617EVSPK router system, on sale) scares you away, then get to googling, and have fun!

Use an auto-feed assembly. They're pricey to buy, but really inexpensive to make. And all your ripping will be done for ya.

What's the practical difference between these and just some feather-boards? It's not readily apparent to me.

These apply force down and towards the fence. So it's similar to using a feather board on the fence to hold down and another on the table to hold the wood toward the fence.

If your using these you should know the sound of the router or saw against the wood vs when it starts binding

Yep, that's the exact type of setup I was talking about. So I guess no significant difference.

I've seen comments here and in woodworking groups from people saying that these are useless and/or dangerous. I'm not sure if this is speculation or from actual use, but I have them and think they're great. There's always some type of cut that is easier to complete in an alternate fashion, but they've never been a hindrance for the work I do. As with pretty much everything in life, YMMV.
