Don’t buy pushsticks when you can make one. Come on now!

Covers how to make a fancy pushstick like the one I made at Cerritos Community College WMT 101
Click for details

Plus: Safe bandsaw, disc sander, drill press, jigsaw, and router techniques.
Cameo by my wife on drill press. Watch me ramble on and on and on and on and on and you get the point.

Enjoy.

Template coming soon.

Stay safe out there.

Thanks for the comments and for watching my generously long video.

Rambling Commentary: The weird thing about shop safety is that it has to be integrated into every video or post or woodworking lesson. Otherwise, who the heck wants to watch it? (Although I did read Woodshop Dust Control). Regardless, a once a year jumpstart is a good idea.

Nice work John. I like the format of making a safety item and showing all the safety considerations that go with making it.

Thanks Jeff. That was the idea in the first place. Hard to condense though.
