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 ...

Pusher System

Pusher System

04-07-2008 08:25 PM by CharlieD | 25 comments »

Recently I played a three way game of catch with my table saw and a small piece of maple plywood. As a result I attempted to catch a 250 MPH plywood line drive with my right thigh. After ensuring my right leg was still attached to the rest of body I decided I needed a little more safety and purchased the GRR-Ripper® precision pusher system. It’s purpose is to serve as a virtual movable blade guard that you hold, rather than a blade guard that is affixed to the back of the table saw...

Micro Jig MJ Splitter Steel PRO System w/Double Splitters

Micro Jig MJ Splitter Steel PRO System w/Double Splitters

07-28-2012 03:28 PM by b2rtch | 25 comments »

This is not full review but a first impression. Being disappointed by another product that I bought to use for a riving knife , I have been looking around for another product which would give the protection/safety that I desire when using my Unisaw.Last week I found the Micro Jig MJ Splitter Steel PRO System w/Double Splitters and after watching the videos on YouTube I ordered one on Amazon for $25.00. I received it yesterday and I installed it this morning. On the videos the installation ...

The best push block I've ever used, but so pricey I make reasons to use it (so I feel better)

When I first saw the MicroJig Grr Ripper (they seem to be on a YouTube product placement campaign, with many icons now sporting their products), I thought “what a neat concept…but do I really want to spend $60 on a push block?” For the most part, I was on the fence, given the large price tag, and perception as a “gateway” product into the realm of MicroJig accessories. It was only when I used a Grr Ripper for the first time that I realized just how much potential the design had to improve t...

New Splitter From the St. Louis WW Show

New Splitter From the St. Louis WW Show

02-25-2010 06:12 AM by John Gray | 8 comments »

I purchased this at the WW show a couple of weeks ago and it works great. I still treat the saw with all the due caution I did before the splitter installation. Use and follow all the safety precautions outlined in your saw’s manual.I’m going to post below the information provided by the company that made it’s web site. Our New MJ Splitter™ SteelPRO is constructed from a 100% polycarbonate shell and reinforced with a solid stainless steel core. Our toughest splitter eve...

MJ Steel Splitter PRO

As an owner of an older, inheirited saw with no guards this was the best and easiest solution I have come across. The saw had the stock splitter/guard disposed of after my dad’s first use of the saw…it was not good and deserved being tossed. I only have room on my saw for a single steel tab, and not for the kerf keeper behind it. Even at that I had to drill into the iron top to accomodate the tab. This is a reflection of the saw and not the splitter. The instructions seemed ...

I’ve been looking at these for about a year and finally pulled the trigger last week. I had a kickback incident that smashed a couple of fingers last year and since then I’ve had my mind on ways to make my old Unisaw safer. This has got to be one of the best safety devices for the woodshop in many years. What it does is so basic its a wonder it has only recently been made commercially. It’s an expensive device to be sure, at $80. For me it took a few smashed fingers to ge...

First Look at Micro Jig's "ZeroPlay" miter bar.

First Look at Micro Jig's "ZeroPlay" miter bar.

07-21-2009 12:42 AM by handi | 3 comments »

Not quite available in stores yet, I got the chance to test and review Micro Jig’s “ZeroPlay” miter bars. They are really two pieces with opposing wedges molded in that spread them to fit the miter slot. Set screws lock the bars once adjusted. They are molded of glass filled nylon, which makes them durable as well as slick enough to slide well. The bars are short at 9 1/2”, but because they make full contact with the slot along their entire length, they are surp...
