Featherboards are both useful and can be considered as a safety tool in some cases too. I use them most on the router table, but they can be used on the table saw, the drill press and other tools as well from time to time. I always think of them as another set of hands to help me hold and steady the wood so I can get a better and more accurate cut.

My original thought was to use some hard foam wheels, but the only ones I could find were too soft, then when thinking about other rubber kinds of wheels, I thought of inline skate wheels ... they are ready almost everywhere at many garage sales and thrift stores for a couple of dollars a pair, which often gives you 3 or 4 pairs of wheels to use.
