Jessem Clear Cut Table SAw Guides

Might have to get a set…but you do have to pay extra when used with an Incra fence

That looks kinda neat, but I’m thinking it would take a lot of getting used to. If you are accustomed to using a push block and maintaining down force all the way through the cut, that certainly won’t work with this setup.

Yes someone did a review on these for a router table model. for $100. I see the TS models are $250 OUCH.

The great thing is that the WHEELS are angled in 5 degrees to help hold the stock against the fence VERY COOL!

Also the rollers are ratcheted so the stock can not kick back.

The only drawback I can see is I usually PUSH block or push STICK my stock with my new favorite PUSH THINGY

I could never use it on thin stock on the roller fence side

I KNOW I KNOW when I got this push stick thingy it looked CLOWNISHLY HUGE. But i use it all the time

I am considering getting these but would like to see them in person first. I wonder how the device would get in the way if I have a fairly narrow piece of wood that I want to slightly trim. I just cut a piece of 2 1/2” wide wood into 2 strips that are 1” wide each and felt that the jessem device would be in the way for a cut like this.

Being able to see try one in person would definitely help

Nice guides works off the same principles as the Grip Tite feather boards….http://grip-tite.com/. Have been using these for years great safety accessory.

Greg, My hand held featherboard/holddown and push shoe accomplishes the same thing (safety) and is free. I personally would save the $250.

I will pass on them for the time being and see if anyone carries them where I can give them a try and hopefully the price can come down a bit…They are overpriced and cost even more to adapt them to an Incra fence.

Have your say...
