Tigger, might I suggest you upgrade saws? I’d hate for you to tool up for that saw, then inevitably get a new saw and nothing works. I used one of those saws again last night at a friend’s shop and am glad I don’t have to do that often. If you need a smaller bench saw, there are others that have ‘real’ miter slots and such. Just a thought.

I avoid Plastic push sticks or push blocks like the plague. Plastic on wood is no good. (Hey, I’m a poet. :) I am also not a fan of loooong push sticks either. Less control IMO. I want something more solid I can control the work with.

Check out ‘The Gripper’. Yes, plastic-ey, but with a rubber gripping base. And lots of material between your hand and the blade. You can even make your own. Plans right here on LJ.

-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--
