GGR-RIPPER 3 D PUSH BLOCK
This is a Must-Have for any Table Saw and one should not use a Table Saw without it. The three directions of force gives you superior precision, control and safety. The downward virtually eliminates kickback and the inward keeps stock firmly against the fence. While the forward controls and feeds both sides of the stock for cleaner cuts.
It has unbelievable gripping power with new and improved Green-GRIP. This is a non-slip material that gives you superior gripping power over workpieces and materials such as oak, cherry, walnut, ebony, pine, poplar, maple, plastics and aluminium. Treaded grooves provide increased traction on the workpiece even with sawdust. It can easily be cleaned with denatured or rubbing alcohol. Guaranteed to grip, no other push block’s grip comes close.
Precision, control and safety has never been so smart. The GRR-RIPPER acts as a Moving-Blade-Guard™ for total hand protection. The Adjustable Centre Leg grips the off cut piece and prevents wood burn. Balance Support stabilizes small and narrow workpieces. It’s also fully adjustable to allow for a limitless amount of uses.

The Automatic Kerf Keeper prevents the saw blade and splitter from binding while cutting hardwoods. When tension and pressure build, the Kerf Keeper is pulled out automatically by the closing kerf.
