stock feeder takes place of push stick

A stock feeder takes the place of a push-stick and helps feed stock smoothly into a stationary power saw.

The stock feeder is attached to the top of the saw with a clamp. Its dial can be adjusted up to a speed of 46 feet per minute and can feed stock forward or backward.

To cut a board using a stock feeder, raise the saw's blade to about 1/4" above the height of the board. Place the board tightly against the saw's fence, and give it a little push. The machine will take over and feed the board through the saw.
