Ahhh the” Big Jointer Push Stick”
This was a design in Wood Magazine (America’s Best Home Workshops) by Phil Bumbalough.
This is the second one i have made. My Mom has a jointer so i gave the first one to her after making sure it worked well, lol. I liked it so much for my router i had to make one more for myself.

Make me one? Thanks,bluchz! Nice job! I bet it works good. I was using my little plastic jobs that came with my Jet yesterday. I was thinking that a jointer could really eat up a hand or finger. I need to do that.

That does look safer than the plastic things I’ve used. How thick is the body, 3 inches or more? It looks to be about as tall as the thoat plate on the saw is wide.

It is 2 2”x4”s glued together and squared in the planer with a 6” or so oak handle( they were scraps laying around) Then due to boredom i put the oak racing stripe on it.
