Topic tags/keywords: safety table saw

ONE SOLD, 1 REMAINING – $45 pus shipping

2 GR-100 GRR-Rippers for table saw safety. Precision woodworking hand pushing tool with adjustable/detachable components. Uses multiple grooved non-slip pads for strong gripping & holding power. Pushes & holds the work piece as the saw blade passes through either right or left tunnel. The handle, center leg & balance support are all fully adjustable.

$45 for one or $80 for two. No DVD.

List price is $65 for one or $109 for two.

It took a number of hours to assemble these two! They came in many pieces and it’s a job getting it all together – so that time will be saved. I just never used them, but many folks swear by them for ease of use and safety features.

Here’s more details, photos, etc. from Amazon (mine are assembled and brand new).....

I also want to add that I bought a grrripper a while back and almost never use it as well.

The problem is that you can’t use the guard on the saw. This isn’t so much a safety issue as it is a dust collection issue. My guard collects almost everything.

That said, there have been a number of times where I needed to make a small “dangerous” cut, and it was definitely nice to have.

I won’t be selling mine, that’s for sure.

Apologies, I just noticed that I had two replies.

Not so much that I did not like them. I spent a lot of time putting them together and just never used them. Not sure I have a good reason, except that perhaps it’s rare for me to be cutting very thin strips.

@Jim, If you are cutting something large enough to leave the guard on you don’t really need the grrripers do you? I use them whenever I have to take the blade guard off my saw because of small cuts and they excel in that regard.

I love mine. The only time they interfere with the guard is when the cut is too narrow for the Grr-ripper to ride between the guard and the fence. For narrow cuts, I don’t mind dealing with the dust. This is a great deal for anyone looking for a pair of these. They also work great on the jointer or router table.
