This sure makes it a lot easier to open my blast gates. I’m glad i saved all those old knobs from mt old kitchen cabinets.

No kids for me just yet, but this seems like a worthy investment. Do you take visa?

Try as I might I can’t see my wife agreeing to stand in from of this thing hunched over while my son feeds. Unless maybe the corners are rounded over. ;-)

In case someone did not get that, my kids were breast fed.

OK. Who is going to make the “redneck” version? I see it with a little taller “v” piece for holding a long neck.

Seriously, these are beautiful blast gates! What did you do to the bottom to seal it off?
I need to make these! More information please.

dragonnotes….I purchased these blast gates from Lee Valley and added the knobs for an easier grip. I like these because they never seem to get clogged up due to the gate passing through completely…seems to keep sawdust from building up. I sealed the bottoms and all joints with clear silicone
