This is a different type of push stick. The handle is redwood with a 1/4” brass rod ground to a point. The reason for the brass is if you happen to hit the blade it will not damage the blade. I also make them in 1/8” brass rods for narrower cuts.

Not only nice looking but a very effective tool. I like that it is made out of brass and won’t damge the blade. I just picked up a bunch of supplies from McMaster Carr. I love that its so close to me.. Guess next trip I’ll be buying some 1/4. I got 3/16 & 1/8 yesterday.

I always try to think of push stick as my fingers, it is never OK to cut into push stick.
Maybe in theory, but l’m not to sure how safe it is. Wooden push sticks will not get sucked into the saw plate.
