I recently acquired an old Ripstrate table saw accessory. I cleaned it up & oiled the pivot points; seems to work as it should.

Are these things useful? I don’t know anyone who has or uses one. I generally use a Grr-ripper push block, & occasionally a featherbooard, and I’m wondering whether this thing is a worthwhile addition to my shop or not.

Anyone use one regularly?

Don’t have the Ripstrate, but I use Board Buddies when ripping larger work pieces regularly. They sure do help, and I’ll bet that yours will do the same. Try it. Let us know your thoughts.
