I saw a lot of reviews saying that the attachment is not 90 degrees, even pictures. I wanted to offer my experience and photos. In the package there are two mounting brackets that fit the 90 degree supports perfectly. These brackets are currently not shown in the product photos in the listing so they must be new additions. They hold the vertical featherboard just slightly over 90 degrees to account for pressure. I can only assume others didn’t see the brackets in the packaging or they did not exist then.
Video shows resew of 7.5" board. The featherboard attachment helps keep constant pressure on the board in two places. You can see it is very quick and easy to set up and remove. The device holds very strong, I can push on it and tip the table saw before moving the magnet. It sticks to the side of my table saw for storage when not in use. When positioned in a way that does not press the board up against the saw blade, this is very effective and safe.
Other reviewers mentioned it's hard to assemble the attachment. I didn't have any problem at all. I added it to the Magswitch Starter Kit and just leave it attached. This vertical featherboard excels at keeping tall boards flat against the fence, yet it doesn't interfere with using it for boards lying flat on the table. I bought another Starter Kit and Vertical Featherboard Attachment set to use for keeping unruly boards flat on the table (either jointer or tablesaw) and it works especially well at keeping thin, slightly warped stock flat when cutting.
Due to the magnetic hold downs the featherboard set-ups are delightful to use since they may be positioned anyplace on the table of the saw. Ideally I would have one for the table saw and one for the bandsaw.
When cutting a 4 x 4 piece of cedar on the tilted table on my bandsaw the double featherboards of the Magswitch assembly held the 4 foot long piece of cedar tightly against the fence. I doubt that I could have done the cut without the Magswitch.
A few characteristics of which you should be aware. Firstly, the assembly and breakdown of the equipment is time consuming. All those pieces in the photograph have to be put together (and taken apart). On my table saw I position the featherboard to the left of the blade while on the bandsaw it is the reverse. This means that the feathers are angled in the wrong direction in one or the other necessitating tearing the assembly apart or buying a second assembly.
I would like to be able to attach the vertical featherboard so it's directly above the workpiece running along the horizontal featherboard but with the right angle brackets moved as far back on the attachment holes on the reversible featherboard that came with the starter kit. However when attached here the vertical featherboard starts 1" away from the horizontal featherboard. This means it is useless for holding down a 1" x 1" section of wood.
If instead I mount the right angle brackets on the slots on the universal base then the outside edge of the vertical featherboard does not extend past the outside edge of the reversible featherboard mounted to the universal base -- also rendering it useless.
Also because the vertical featherboard only has morticed slots on one side (instead of both sides like the reversible featherboard that came with the starter kit) when I attach it in an orientation for use with a workpiece moving from left to right (feather edges oriented down and to the left) the carrige bolt heads protrude past the edge of the featherboard preventing the featherboard from moving flush against a fence.
The middle section of the vertical featherboard attachment is curved/warped so the attachment rails on the end are not parallel. The warped plastic caused the attachment slots to be 2 degrees out of parallel.
