Push blocks are an important part of working with a table saw. They help to assuredly guide boards so that they pass through the saw straight and easily, and also keep your hands up and away from running saw blades. However, most handmade push blocks, and push blocks provided by the other guys, haven't changed much over the years. They simply don't have the gripping power and aren't optimized to ensure a completely safe, no-slip experience in the shop, and as a result they require more elbow grease to work with. Now, the Grr-Rip Block by Microjig is here to take the uncertainty and difficult work out of getting precise cuts quickly on your table saw. Microjig makes all of their products around the idea that working smarter is always better and more efficient than working harder, and the Grr-Rip Block is proof of that motto.
Grr-Rip Blocks feature proprietary no-slip Green Grr-Rip gripping material. This material is made up of high-quality rubber and risen bumps that individually conform to the wood surface while allowing dust and debris to pass through easily which means nothing comes between you and a firm hold while sawing. A sliding grip can unnerve even the most skilled craftsman but the Grr-Rip Block takes the fear out of the job so that all you need to focus on is your cut. The block also features Smart Hooks that drop down at the bottom of your board for added support. The hooks are so smart because they automatically retract mid-cut; they can also be locked in their position if needed. Everything about this tool is designed specifically to be the one-stop solution for all your push block frustrations.
Grr-Rip Blocks and many other fine Microjig products are available for purchase and delivery online, but also at Menard's and local hardware stores all across the Midwest!
