This is my version of Bluchz’s “Big Jointer Push Stick”. Mulberry and Maple
For all who suggested that screws in the bottom of the heel plate was a bad idea I made the changes!
The last two pics are before I made the changes!

I like this as well. Like Darryl and Giz I need to make one of these too. I have more “respect” for my jointer than any other tool I own so one of these would go a long way towards making jointing a safer operation.

Hi Spanky;

I like that. I made one, not quite so nice, and I mounted the handle the opposite way.

Seemed like a good idea, since I was reaching back to the end of the board. It works well.

I like your push stick and the machine it’s used on. They are both impressive!

very nice shop safety project . I was considering making one with an additional knob towards the front for better pressure distribution.

This is a great push stick. Add me to the list of “I need to make one of those!” My hands are very small so something that would give me better control such as this is always welcomed, ya know? Thanks for sharing!

Great idea. The only thing I will do different is to definitely NOT put screws in the rear of the push stick like that. One slip and you’ll have a ruined set of blades.

I really like your push stick as well. Mine works well enough, but it sure doesn’t look like yours. Nice work.

Well that’s a lot nicer than the one i made. Mine was pine and oak scraps. With the oak inlay(is that the right term?) anyway i like the saw handle. it looks sturdier(is that a word?) and definitley no screws except to hold the handle on mine.Wish i had a jointer also still saving, Ive been using mine on the table saw and router table.

I noticed the screws also. Looks like a great push stick otherwise.

Nice push stick. I will have to remember your’s when I refurb and use the jointer that I have. Thanks for sharing.
