Good evening LJ’s,
Last week I ordered and received this gripper Model 200Y, this on the verge of a cabinet job :)
Well friends I put it to the test ripping anything from plywood cabinet sides to face frame materials and it lived up to their claims. the green sticky rubber really grips the wood without sliding and keeping it renewed is simply using denatured Alcohol to clean it. the plate on the bottom assists in helping rip thin stock, remove it with a simple loosening of two wing nuts and you have a push pad for wide stock Remove the right side gripper leg and drop the stabilizer foot on the left and adjust the center leg and rip narrow pieces, I do not condone removing the blade guard but sometimes this is necessary the gripper keeps you safe by keeping you hands well above the blade and out of harms way and the simple fact that you can rip thin strips Up to 1/4’’ with the included leg ( An 1/8” leg is available) is invaluable all in itself. This jig is just not limited to the tablesaw as I have already used it on the jointer, and router table, and can say it was a great experience. Assembly was easy and the manual was clear and concise.
As I close It would be safe to say that if you are serous about woodworking and safety then you really should llok to getting one of these and
When I get the money up I will be purchasing a second one
