FAQ 2018-01-10T14:48:09+00:00
What are the dimensions of the miter clamp? Will it fit my miter slot? 2018-01-10T14:46:49+00:00

3/4-inch wide x 3/8-inch high

The miter clamp is cast aluminum and CNC milled for tight tolerances and a precision fit.  It is designed to fit 3/4-inch wide miter slots. If you have a 5/8-inch or metric miter slot, the Hedgehog miter clamp will not fit. We don’t currently offer any optional sizes but please let us know what you need and we’ll add it to our list of things to look at.

 

 

What is the reach of the Hedgehog “feathers?” 2018-02-15T13:27:37+00:00

From the center point of the knob (or center of the miter clamp), the distance to the end of the nearest finger is 1-9/16″. The distance to the end of the farthest finger is 6-13/16″.

The Hedgehog is moving around in the miter slot. What can I do? 2018-03-01T21:59:44+00:00

The miter clamp is CNC milled for a precise fit in 3/4-inch miter slots. When the knob is tightened, it causes the conical head of the screw to expand the miter clamp which tightens it in the miter slot. There are two possible causes for the miter clamp not being secure in the miter slot:

  1. The conical head of the screw has two bumps that should be placed inside the gaps of the miter clamp to prevent it from rotating. Ensure that these are positioned properly.
Screw head should be flush with the miter clamp.

2. If the miter clamp is moving in the slot or the body of the Hedgehog is rotating too much, simply tighten the knob a bit more. Since the Hedgehog only has a single knob, it requires a bit more force to tighten  than that required with traditional featherboards that have two knobs.

I hate clamshell packaging! How do I get the Hedgehog out of this thing?! 2018-01-10T14:57:20+00:00

Simply cut along the bottom-right edge and the right edge with a normal pair of scissors. The Hedgehog slips right out.

How do you ship? 2018-01-10T14:58:11+00:00
