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-RipperĀ® 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...

How much would you pay to ensure that you retain all ten digits for life?

How much would you pay to ensure that you retain all ten digits for life?

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 earmuffs every woodworker should have

the earmuffs every woodworker should have

05-24-2008 11:27 AM by moshel | 14 comments »

Got these for my B-day from my wife. I guess that she was getting tired of having to enter the workshop and kick me while i was working to attract my attention.The earmuff are class 5 with radio and active surround noise filtering. in simple words, you can work with the earmuffs and still hear what you are doing, but completely protect your hearing. I have worked with them for a week now and they are terrific. they are so good that I actually use them also in the house to hear radio. the earm...

Good Safety Glasses

Good Safety Glasses

04-12-2014 04:23 AM by Whiskers | 15 comments »

Okay guys, not sure on protocol here, but I searched on here on the subject before I bought these and didn’t really find any useful info. There was a post from someone who bought some expensive motorized safety glasses made for paintball users, but that was a bit more than I wanted to go for. Anyway, I got these today, and played with them a bit, and than posted this review on Amazon, so I’m re-posting it here for anyone that wants to make comment, or find if they are looking fo...

Hearing protection with tunes

Hearing protection with tunes

03-11-2010 06:28 AM by johnnymo | 7 comments »

Well, the earmuffs I used for hearing protection finally broke and it was time to replace them. I decided to go with the worktunes earmuffs because I wasn’t able to hear my radio once I turned on my equipment. Well, they work great! The earmuffs really drown out the noise from the tablesaw and jointer and you really don’t need to have the radio on high to hear the music through the earmuffs. This particular model I bought allows you to plug in your MP3 player. The only issue ...

Ear muff / radio / MP3 player

Ear muff / radio / MP3 player

I bought these ear muffs from Amazon for $60 after reading a review on LJ’s about another Howard Leight model. I really like them especially when I’m sanding. They protect my hearing and I can listen to music at the same time. They’re also very easy to find in the shop since they’re bright green. I scared myself when I looked in the mirror though because I was wearing a grey and pink dust mask with the bright green ear muffs and glasses. It’s quite a fashion ...

Great... but...

Great... but...

10-16-2009 08:41 PM by greggr | 12 comments »

I bought a pair of these a few months ago after checking with my supervisor for approval. They work great, especially the Mp3 feature. With an el-cheapo generic Mp3 they will play for about 10 hours until the Mp3 battery needs a recharge. The sound is excellent and blocks out most of the surrounding noise. Herein lies the “but”. Unfortunately my employer has reversed on approval after several other people started using the same unit. Their reasoning (and I guess I agree r...

Possibly the best pushblock ever made

Possibly the best pushblock ever made

07-12-2009 04:27 PM by Chris Wright | 17 comments »

Ok, so maybe that’s a bit strong of a statement, but it is a great push block. This push block allows you to feed stock through a table saw on both sides of the blade, parallel with out any slipping. One of the sides is 1/4 wide, the other is a 1/2 inch and there’s an adjustable center foot that can be slide to the left or right to make way for the blade. On the bottom is a great gripping surface that will find positive grip on just about any surface, well every surface I’...

Gorilla Grip gloves

Gorilla Grip gloves

03-11-2013 04:35 PM by DouginVa | 10 comments »

I was at the local Home Deposit the other day and as I was walking out I saw these gloves on an end cap, and they caught my eye. They were only $4.95 and were very light weight with a elastic mesh back and a rubber palm and fingers. They dont’ restrict your movement like lates gloves or heavier finishing gloves do. They actually feel like thin soft cottom gloves you see photo processors use, or curators in a fine museam to protect the work from oily skin, etc. I don’t know a...

A Better Mousetrap

A Better Mousetrap

The Grr-Ripper from Microjig is a hand held holddown/push device intended for use with woodworking machinery as an added line of protection between hands and the cutter. It essentially replaces traditional push sticks and push pads, and can be used for most table saw, router, jointer, shaper, sander, bandsaw, and probably several other operations. It allows good control of the workpiece during close cutting operations with less risk to human flesh. The Grr-Ripper is an elegant and improved so...
