Gripper?

It does look rather nicely made. So much so that I'd *hate* to run it into the blade.

Like a fender on a car parts are replacable. ;~)

I do have a kerf in mine. Works just as though. I put off buying one for about a year thinking that it was expensive for a push block and have many "slick devices" that were a waste of money. Since I saw nothing but positive reviews, I finally broke down and bought. Don't regret it a bit. Well worth the money. And that kerf I have in mine? Better it than my hand.

I think it is the feel and the grip that makes it such a pleasure to use over a make shift push "what ever". I did find that if you have the middle leg spaced about 5/16" over form an outer leg you can loose a pencil in there.... I wonder how long that pencil has been in there, I though to myself this afternoon. ;~)

I'd hate to run my hand _or_ $69.95.

They were advertised at $41.99 in the Peachtree emailing recently, though they're back-ordered. The parts are replaceable, though also not cheap.

Keep in mind also, typically you don't damage a part with a single cut. It takes several cuts before you may consider replacing a part.

Sure, I expected that. It seems that some don't mind their Gripper being sacrificial.

It's "sacrificial" nature is the reason why I use mine. Better it, than me. :)

I guess the issue is whether people would sacrifice the Gripper for the cut (plan on notching it), or not. The whole saw could be sacrificed for my hand, if it would help.

I just took it for granted that that's why the spacers that do the actual gripping were replaceable.
AAMOF, I've used what used to be the 1/8" Gripper spacer block, when making 1/4" edge banding strips for shelf fronts, etc, for so long, and so hard, that it is now about a 1/32" +/- spacer. :)

I was just trying to clarify the issue at hand.

We'll see. They shipped them today. I still have a couple of weeks to wait to use the tools again, though.

On the DVD a gentleman that cuts veneers on his TS purposely sacrifices his Gripper for that purpose. "Zero Clearance"

I've kept two around for years now, one for each hand on the jointer, when running stock over a dado stack, or on the router table. Excellent for ripping thin strips and smaller pieces with much more control.
Would not be without them. Highly adjustable, worth every penny, and they'll cut back dramatically on trips to the emergency room.

You cut down on your number of trips to the ER, eh? How many fewer trips will I make if I stick to the regular $1.99 plastic/foam push tools?

Love my gripper. Buy 2, and get the set. better than most ... I use it on the router table too. Great grip, and nice design. I still use home made occasionally but only when I am going to cut thru the gripper because of a weird setup.
