Narrow Stock Ripping Push Block Jig
I had the need to rip some narrow stock and every time I need something like this I never had a proper jig. So I put together this push block type, roughly, dirty and quick from any scrub I had around to check if this works. Surprisingly it does work for what I had to do now, and much safer than a thin push stick.
I’ll use it for a while and see how it goes, and maybe I will need to build this again in a bit more nice look… or maybe not… :) :) :) !!!

Thanks for watching

That’s an interesting jig.

use to rip thin (less than 1/4 inch) between the fence and blade but now I use a thin rip jig. Much, much safer.

How does this jig work I see a metal part and a bunch of steps which pushes and holds the material ?

Would you need the metal leg if the body is supported by the top of the fence, I like your idea of the multiple steps.

Hi Klaus, the steps are for different thickness stock that pushes it and the metal part is to hold it down.
Actually there is another idea if this doesn’t work in other situations to remove the metal part and have a second sheet o MDF that can be adjusted and lock up and down.
