The more I do, the less I accomplish.

The blocky switchable magnet indicator bases are very powerful magnets, on a cast iron saw or jointer they are plenty strong.

I have 2 switchable magnetic featherboards and they hold just fine, even on a waxed table saw top.

I’m tempted to give this a try for the band saw to do some light resale work and maybe on the jointer - only cast iron bases I’ve got. Will make a trip to HF and see what develops...
