Here’s my inexpensive version of the Gripper

Just a piece of white wood cut to ride on top of the fence.
I rabbeted the sides so that it would fit inside the fence and then added two pieces of 1/4 inch ply.

Still not used to photobucket so I don’t know how these will show.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Very cool!
Did you add that white plastic to the fence?

Nope. That came with it.
It’s the slick plastic to help the wood slide.

Great idea, Lee. I think I’ll go build me one, my push stick is worn out.

Looks good, Lee. No hole in your photobucket. And the fixture is a good idea too

Thanks for sharing the idea. I have a Grippper (or however they spell it) but like your idea better and will make one tomorrow. My fingers – all ten – thank you.

Hmmm.. No adjustability? I like the concept but can’t see how it would work on thick wood.?? I think if you slotted the saw side of the jig at both ends and made the top portion higher then you could run a jig bolt through it so that it was adjustable it would be better.

Have your say...
