I like your push block, but the links you posted return a “page not found” message.

Correct links are:

David Bethune:

Bill, you forgot to leave a space between the link and the word “(Click”. Also I have pointed these links to the actual project rather than to the “widget” picture.

Oh, and that’s a nice pusher by the way – better than a quick hack job that I did a little while ago.

Push Blocks,

A very handy device.

I saw the GRR-Ripper some years ago, but stocks were not available in Australia.
Northwood originally had them but it was reported the QLD Floods took the business out.

I then spent some time attempting to purchase them and eventually gave up on the local scene.

Not being too put off I went directly to Micro Jig and asked for the Aust distributor.

So I made my own crude versions just to see if they worked.

They did

Construction Ply and structural flooring offcuts, handle the same, some non slip mat on the bottom with Contact adhesive held together with Kreg Screws.

-- Regards Robert

I really need to make a pair of these, or at least something similar. Thanks for the DIY ideas.
