I don’t have experience with either, but does anyone with experience with one or the other have something to say about this?

I just looked on the MLCS website and didn’t see anything that really compares with the Grr-Ripper. Can you give a link to the “MLCS Power Push Block”?

If it holds the wood on both sides of the blade like the Grr-Ripper it should be a great tool.

Here is the MCLS Power Push Block

In my opinion – I wouldn’t pay $29 for something I can make with scrap wood in less than half an hour.

I saw the GRR-Ripper and the Grip-Tite at the woodworking show recently, the magnetic Grip-tite with the rollers seemed easier to use, might want to check it out.

rich – that’s what i was wondering about. The MLCS looks like something I could easily make, and the GRR-ripper doesn’t. But is the GRR-ripper hiding something very simple in the works. I guess what i was wonderins is, is the MLCS essentially the same, but without any frills, or is the GRR-ripper “irreducibly complex”? ;-)

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.
