Hi guys!

Here is my Upgraded Super–Gripper pusher (I matched most important features of the Deluxe Grr-ripper model) .
All comments are welcomed!

Here is the video of the process and its capabilities (3 min.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7Ow9GhgB_o

In this video I’m upgrading my Pusher (a-la Grr-ripper) by adding: a 1/8” leg, stabilizing plate/balance support, routing spacer and a “heel” for resawing and veneer cuts to match all Grr-ripper Deluxe model’s capabilities.

Link to part 1 (how to make a simple version of a Super-Gripper Pusher) is here:

Be safe and happy woodworking!

Nice job and great pictures.
I made one but my mistake was using to heavy materials, so it was really to heavy for my use making small model parts.
Just thought I’d mention this for others wanting to make one.

Thank you. Yes, making it too bulky would make it less practcal. Thank you for the warning.:)

Very nice. How much time you figure it takes to make one? Weekend project?

Anyone tried – or have thoughts on – making the top plate out of 1/2” or 3/4” acrylic, so you could see the cut through the top plate? Plus acrylic takes tapped threads very well for the handle, rails, knobs, etc.

Thank you!
You can make the simple version in about 2 hours, it helps if you have a handle already…
Milling plexiglass is not long either. I would say, you can make the “deluxe model” in about 4 hours. I can’t say for sure as I was filming the process and it slows the process significantly… I am planning to make one actualyl:)

Thanks, Ivan!
I think the original will be a little lighter and more ergonomic (I’ve never held it in my hands though only saw the presentation of its capabilities once) but as far as its functionality–not much better…

I apologize if it offends you in any way and can change the name if it becomes an issue for you.
I am not planning to sell any plans, market or compete with you in any way. And would love to make links to the “Original Grip-N-Rip” anywhere you would want me.
Thanks. Michael
