Default A different "feather" board

The hinge is a spring loaded gate type.

One advantage to that is that different width material could be worked on without adjusting the jig. It doesn't even look like it has an adjustment for the distance from the fence???

It is a good idea, and quite innovative, but does have its limitations,and like Paul mentions it needs to have some adjustment built in.

Very clever. Mount the presently fixed block on a flat piece of ply. Cut slots in the ply to allow for adjustment. Drop the swinging piece down to the table height and you have lateral adjustment. I think I'd prefer to have an aluminum, Tslotted miter bar. That hinge is going to apply a lot of lateral force on a wooden bar. T bolts up from the bar, riding in the ply slots with star knobs to lock the ply in place. About an hour to make at most. Love it.
