I ordered a set of push pads from rockler and they came in yesterday I used them today and all I can say is wow I figured they would be nice to have. I used them with my jointer and bench router and the difference was amazing. Not only did it seem to work better it felt a lot safer. I know alot of you will say well duhhhhh but hey I am learning every day. I’m going to order another set just so I have a spare.

If it was these I agree. I bought a set, and while it’s hard to get all giddy over push blocks, these things are far superior to any I’ve seen elsewhere. You can see the size difference compared to the older ones I had. These are Bench Dog brand, I believe. Thet have grip on materials like melamine and prefinished ply that the others won’t grip.

I need some of those. I keep looking for them but nobody has them or they don’t know what they are.

Great thread, I luck out and purchased these on sale. These push pads make a world of difference
when used and the control of the material is amazing.
