I was asked to show the Woodline Adjustable Push Block, I got at the Woodshow we attended over the weekend. And a couple of the guys were interested in the cyclones I made from a one hp Harbor Frieght dust collector, which wasn’t worth much until I did this to it, and I had a small blue barrel I picked up at a yard sail last summer I hooked up to my 5 hp Rigid shop Vac, < shop >< shop < shop >< shop ><shop< a href=”http://s947.photobucket.com/albums/ad316/profisher60/118CANON/?action=view&current=IMG0013.jpg” target=”_blank”>shop >

I’ve got 20 foot of hose hooked up to the I hp HF and big barrel and that thing can suck. I’m going to get a 2 hp to hook that up around the shop to hook the machines to and use these for general cleaning. I make pretty good messes with the lathes. The 1 hp HF will pick up one of my screw drivers, so I have to run a magnet through the sawdust before sweeping,

I bet there was no argument from the wife on purchasing the gripper knockoff :)

How is the quality of the Woodline Adjustable Push Block? The gripper is a very nice pushblock but is overpriced. I have one and although it is very good, I have always felt it should be cheaper. If the Woodline Adjustable Push Block is of a good quality it should be popular…since a bit of good competition always seems to keep prices in check.

David it comes with two brackets one set is short, the way it’s used is that piece that’s hanging off to the side is on the outside of your piece of wood. They give you two smaller ones to use that wouldn’t touch the fence. Did that make sense? Plus the bottom is foam. The handle is movable too David. I haven’t had a chance to use it but I will, I had to promise a certain wife I would, when I do I’ll give you a more honest to goodness review, ok?

The only problem is you have to loosen the handle to move the bracket, and it wants to move hard, I’m hoping to spray some silicone in there to make it slide. We will see!!!
