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.
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 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:
- 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.
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.
Simply cut along the bottom-right edge and the right edge with a normal pair of scissors. The Hedgehog slips right out.
All orders for the Hedgehog are shipped via USPS:
If you order a single Hedgehog, you have the option of First Class Mail (the most economical) or Priority Mail (2-3 days to most cities). If you order two or more Hedgehogs, the total weight is greater than 16 oz. so your only option is Priority Mail.
