Does anyone have this? I’m considering but want to know if the width of the grr-ripper will allow me to rip a 2 1/2” piece (the 2 1/2” piece between the blade and fence)

Also is this tool really only meant for ripping small pieces considering it grips both the cut piece and the off cut?

The tool can do all of that and more. Check our the company’s vid on YouTube.

There are reviews of the grr-ripper on here as well.

A woodworking pal recommended these to me and they are a perfect safety add-on. Excellent accessory to have with your table saw, router table, etc. I have a pair of Gr-r-r-rippers, plus the add-on 1/8” leg and find them to be a GREAT safety device. Don’t know how I kept all of my fingers all of these years using push-blocks.!

Great tool! Just be sure to check that the movable pad clears the blade before cutting….............DAMHIKT!!

I have two of them, which are handy when ripping long pieces. You use a hand-over-hand method in that case.

Great tool! On Paul’s note about checking clearance, I found you can cut it cleanly if you don’t check!

Grippers are awesome. I regularly cut 1/8” Strips with the thin rip attachment.
