Hi all,
I'll try and make this quick and not my usual Woffle.
Thought a great help on my table saw is one of them magnetic Magswitch feather boards (with only one hand functioning)
£46 later and the wait was doing my head in...only to find this #-o
No magnetic use on the table of my table saw.
Only metal was the black extenders.
I have emailed Evoloution to see if there's replacements for the table (left of the blade and fence, but no reply.
In my tiny head I can either send it back and get a different option or I thought about thin plate of steel and it clamped on the table, and the Magswitch can operate as its function.
Any help suggestions would be great.

Yeah, they are designed for tablesaws/bandsaws with cast iron tops. Magnetics are not attracted to plastic and alloys :)

Make or buy a normal feather board that fits into the mitre slots.

Hi Bri - agreed with both comments above - if you have a mitre channel running parallel to the blade then use or get hold of the same dimension bar that fits your channel & attach a steel plate to the bar then make sure it will lock and not slide or lift up (Important it is fixed firmly if you are putting pressure on it) then you can use the mag board you have bought.
Or just send the mag board back and explain it was bought in error - your call really.
Cheers
