Do you have any experience with Gripper™ 200 Advanced System?
It looks good but does it work?

I posted some plans to make a Grip-N-Rip system a few years ago on here…

Yes, I have a pair of these and they work well. I don’t use them all the time, only really for cuts in narrow stock, but I’ll use them to make cuts on the table saw I would not try otherwise. It takes some getting used to running your hand directly over the top of the blade. You also have to take the blade guard off to use this; depending on how difficult that is with your saw (or if you use your guard at all) may have some baring on how much you use them. My guard is a PITA to take off, so I use them less than I could.

It looks like David’s posted plans would do the same think; one detailed post!

I use my grippers all the time, greatest thing ever! David, will have to check out your plans, I could always use another pair of them and at the price they are going for, your option looks like a fun build and less expensive.
