I was thinking the other day I barely allow my hold down foot to touch my parts as they all have Freshly printed graphics on them. I looked around for 3rd party feet and found none that used some sort of other material as the part that made contact with the parts…

I have some scrap NYLON in my shop I have no idea where I got it from but was thinking of making a NYLON foot that is in contact with my parts. I was also thinking of some sort of FEATHER BOARD but it would have to work in 360 degree directions.

How about just getting some rubber, plastic or silicone tubing, slit open down one side and slide it onto the foot? A couple of dabs of adhesive or even some tape might be good to hold it in place. You could also just try wrapping it with tape?

You could also use the insulation off of a piece of wire.

Well its has to be slippery so the parts can slide so rubbers out

I just removed mine, it was always in the way and it doesn’t really do anything.

Try a piece of wire insulation called THHN. The N stands for nylon. Very slippery.

I took it it of my scroll saw. I know a lot of folks who take it off.

Have your say...
