Position of the featherboard? Answered

Hello,

can you please confirm that the featherboard should be placed in parallel to the fence , but before the blade? What would happen if you placed it between the waste side of the work and the blade?

Hi,
Of course in parallel to the fence because it needs to hold the stock in place and before the blade because it's meant to prevent kickback. Never press the waste side of the wood, that's asking for cutoff pieces flying around your head.......:-(
