No, I haven’t done that and yes I’ve considered it. But it’s no trouble to hold it…takes very little pressure and I can quickly take the router out of the cut if there’s trouble. A spring seems like it would get in the way as much as be helpful. It’s never going to be something I can walk away from, so this keeps me paying attention! :) I might consider a friction stop to hold the follower for cutting cylinders (like dowels) but there’s another type of setup I made for that purpose before the follower was made.

Notice that there is no center support on the 1” diameter spindle in this long cut, that’s how little pressure there is to the cutting action.
