Clamping featherboards to my tablesaw was always a hassle until I discovered locking welding clamps. Their C-shaped jaws adjust to fit the webbed castings on the bottom of the extension table. They clamp and release easily, so adjustments and realignments are a snap. I use locking welding clamps all over my shop. They're much lighter and easier to use than long-reach woodworking clamps. Be sure the ones you buy have swivel pads. I glue on plywood faces, for no-mar clamping.
