    power feeder

    Iíve designed and will be selling in kit form a revolutionary new power feeder that will allow many woodworkers to use a power feeder for jobs they never considered power feeder use as an option. This is especially true for use on router tables and band saws, where even the smallest commercial power feeder is often too big and heavy (and expensive) to mount on small machines.

    It uses a brushless motor cordless drill as a power source, and a plywood gear speed reduction box distributes the drills power to the feederís three polyurethane feed rollers.

    But video speaks louder than words, so hereís a link to a couple of the more unusual things my little contraption is capable of.




    Iím looking for any input for changes that might improve it, or even thoughts of ridicule and skepticism!

    Most excellent! I'd love to have one but I'm busy building machine tools right now.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    With one of these I do not have to buy a SawStop table saw, which is on my list. When will these be available?

    power feeder

    I'm finalizing some details with input from a mechanical engineer, and then I am purchasing some custom parts. I should have plans available by late August and complete kits soon thereafter. Thanks for the interest! Little Proteus Power Feeder
