- GRR-Ripper Basic Grr-ripper with 1/8" leg addition
- Brand: GRR-Ripper | Category: Tablesaw Accessories
I have never reviewed any tool before, but I like this one so much that I needed to say something.
I, like most LJ’s, build my own jigs and push sticks, but I need to cut a lot of small pieces for trim, inlay etc.
I have already cut myself on the tablesaw once and that was plenty for the rest of my life!!!!
So I bought the basic Grr-ripper with the additional 1/8” leg, set it up and started cutting slightly under 1/8’
pieces and my hands were NO WHERE NEAR the blade. What a great feeling!!! The rubberized legs actually held onto the small piece that was cut and slid it right out with the uncut piece – so I didn’t have to worry about kick back or losing the piece under all the saw dust.
Ok, it’s mostly plastic but very well put together and they give you plenty of screws and washers to make different configurations. I’ve been a woodworker for 10 years and, to me, this tool is well worth the money.
I know there will be somebody out there that hates this thing but I love it.
Hope this review helps some LJ to make up his mind! Uncle Stumpy
