Hey Bob,

I bought 2 of them a couple of years ago. For many tablesaw jobs, they are a real asset. As with all things, though, they don’t do everything. I use the GRRippers in a leap frog fashion for ripping thin stock, and when dimensioning hardwood. I don’t recall using them for sheet goods. I find that they are terrific for woods that may wander and for smaller pieces. They don’t replace featherboards and pushsticks, but they do add an added way of getting a piece of wood through the saw. If you want to test drive them, I’ll send mine to you to try out. We have a courier that runs to Edmonton everyday, and for 13 bucks you can test drive em for a week or so if you like.

Tom
