I’m still not over the euphoria caused by my “discovery” of the MUSCLECHUCK and I’m excited in a different way now that I have “discovered” a safety tool that appears to have been around for a long time but neither any of my many friends or of course myself had heard of it. I refer to the GRR-Ripper, now, like all woodworkers I have bought and made countless push sticks and feather boards over the years but accidents still occur. I can honestly say that in the over sixty years that I have been woodworking I have never felt as safe when using my table saw, jointer, router table and band-saw as I have been in the few weeks that I’ve had my GRR-Ripper GR200Y.
I had intended to produce a pdf with heaps of photographs but the superbly produced DVD by MicroJig and the several well made videos on Youtube would have made my effort rather amateurish.
The GRR-Ripper can be configured in numerous ways especially with the addition of various available accessories. It did take me a while to get the hang of quickly changing from one configuration to another but like any new tool there is a learning curve. I’m certain that two GRR-Rippers are better than one and that is probably how I’ll end up.
In conclusion, I consider the GRR-Ripper to be an essential safety device which should not only be in every woodworking shop but used regularly. Had this been invented 20, 30 or more years ago there would, I’m sure, be many, many woodworkers around now with all ten fingers. Here are links to GRR-Ripper videos:
