This is a sliding push block I made to fit on my table saw fence for ripping thin strips and small parts
I made it from scrap wood so the price is right
I made a quick vid of the build for those who want to see just click the link

This is a easy build and keeps your fingers away from the blade witch is a good thing
Thanks for looking

Congrats to a great idea. Your hand is completely away from the blade. Surprised I haven’t seen this before. Well done. Nice video too.

I have an adjustable stop but I prefer to just set the fence and cut my thin stock like this, I find it quicker and more accurate for me.
I like your push block, safety first!
Thanks
