The clear-cut stock guide is a revolutionary and innovative gadget that replaces a simple featherboard but with more benefits. The feather boards are a great tool for holding your stock and preventing kickback, but they have their limitations.
The unique guide rollers on the stock guides are mounted on a 5 degree angle effectively steering your stock toward the fence. Your stock is pulled tightly to the fence and the grip force of the urethane rollers holds it securely in position.
This guide operates on the same principle as a stock feeder in that the stock is guided at a slight angle as it fed foward. With the stock being guided at a slight angle toward the fence, it is critical they not rotate in the outfeed direction, especially if you are cutting a dado or other machining with the board. This would feed the stock unwanted in the cutter. To prevent this and any kickback, each roller is fitter with a one way needle roller bearing. This ensure each roller spins in the direction of the feed.
With Jessem Clear-Cut Stock Guides, setup is fast and easy. They are locked in their position along the fence with a single twist of the pivot knob and the height setting is controlled with the tightening of the clamping knob. For long term routing, they even broached the clamping knobs to accept a 1/4" hex key so you can tighten them even more for more added security. When not in use, they just pivot out of the way.
