Topic tags/keywords: gripper for sale

Hey LJs,

I am a beginning woodworker in my 20s who has a pretty strict tool budget. I bought a Gripper 200 (http://goo.gl/CHQxqM) and the 1/8” optional sidepiece (http://goo.gl/AhftfG) a couple months ago when I got my first table saw because I really thought it would be helpful/more safe. To be honest, I hardly ever use it and am hoping to sell it in order to put the money to much more needed tools (planer, jointer, the list goes on and on…). I am selling all that is pictured for $75 including shipping. That is $20 off the retail price for both. Full disclosure: this does not include the instructional DVD. I cannot find it for the life of me.

You are welcome to PM with a lower offer, but I am in no rush and will just post it on ebay if I don’t find a buyer here. Thanks.

My advice would be to keep your Grr-Gripper. You should be using some sort of push block on your TS and jointer when you get one. In the scheme of things $75 isn’t a lot of money and the safety afforded by the Grr-Ripper is well worth it. They are a great system especially if you have 2. I love mine and wish I had the money to buy another but I am currently unemployed. Just my .02 cents…

I’m with Andy. Maybe you haven’t used it much yet, but it’s invaluable to me in certain situations. (Especially if you want to rip something small that you just can’t get a good grip on with a regular push stick or block.)

I also recommend you keep it. I think about it this way, are your fingers worth $75?

I appreciate everyone’s comments, but I am pretty firm that I want to sell. What it comes down to is that I am just plain not using it. No need to having it sitting on my shelf.

Have your say...
