Push blocks are arguably the most important tool when using a table saw. They help to firmly guide pieces of wood so that they pass through the saw easily, and also keep your hands up and away from the dangerous running saw blade. However, a lot of handmade push blocks, and push blocks provided by the other guys, haven't changed much over time. They don't have the gripping power or optimized features necessary to ensure a completely safe, no-slip experience in the shop, and as a result they require more elbow grease to operate. Thankfully, the Grr-Rip Block by Microjig is available to take the uncertainty and hard work out of getting precise cuts quickly on your table saw. Microjig creates 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 a testament to that belief.
The Grr-Rip Block features proprietary no-slip Green Grr-Rip gripping material. The material is comprised of risen bumps that individually conform to the wood surface while allowing dust and debris to pass through easily so that nothing comes between you and a firm hold while sawing. An unsure grip can unnerve even the most skilled craftsman, 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 tail end of your board for extra support. The hooks are smart because they automatically retract mid-cut and can also be locked in their position if needed. Everything about this tool is tailor-made to be the one-stop solution for all your push block frustrations.
These tools and many other fine Microjig products are available for purchase and delivery online, and also at Menard's and local hardware stores all over the Midwest!
