The Grr gripper isn’t part of a complete breakfast, but it is a universal pushing jig for table saws, router tables and jointers.  It holds both sizes of your workpiece, keeping your fingers out of harms way during the cut.

Unlike a push stick or push block, the Gripper maintains balanced pressure on the wood as it passes through and beyond the blade. It maintains a parallel, forward direction with the blade while keeping pressure against your rip fence to prevent burning — and eliminates the need to feed stock with your bare hands.

You can cut strips as thin as 1/4″ without any special setup, and your can offset the Gripper to accommodate small, irregular shaped, pieces on the router table — which means you can make use of very small scraps.

Though we cringe every time we see the word “revolutionary” tacked to the first sentence of a tool’s website tag line, the Grr Gripper looks sturdy and simple to use.  However like many “revolutionary” tools, this one will hit you in the wallet.  Street pricing starts around $70, so you can forget picking it up as an impulse buy.

    Wow, and all this time I was just using a couple of sticks with notches in the ends.

    This looks like a grr-great tool, but com’on… $70?? I think they would have to cut this price in half before I would consider purchasing it. I could build one myself out of MDF for less than $70.

  3. Eric says:

    hmm.. I doubt anyone would use this regularly, just grabbing a stick instead… maybe just for difficult cuts.. but a feather board still seems easier

    Actually, I have (and use) one of these fairly regularly. As with most safety gear, you have to ask yourself one thing: is the purchase price of the tool less than a trip to the ER?

    So, why did I buy this, rather than just use a notched board? Same reason I use this push “stick” – the rubber grippers simply do a better job. Ever had a push stick, notched or otherwise, slip on the board you’re pushing? Scary. I suppose one could glue a bit of drawer liner to a board, but hey I like to build cabinets more than tools! And its going to take you a lot more than $70 in time to build something like the grrr-ripper – rubber treads, adjustable width and height, etc.

    I plunked down the money for the grrrr-ripper the day I had to run 400 ft. of maple through the saw for edgebanding. I have (and use regularly) a piece of notched 1/4″ plywood for a pushstick, but when you have to push the offcut through safely, the grrr-ripper is simply a better tool. The outrigger is a very nice feature – it keeps your stock from tipping, and thus you get a cleaner cut. Cleaner cut means less time planing, scraping, or sanding, and less waste. And *that* means more money savings, in stock if noting else.

    BTW, I would NOT recommend using one of these without a zero-clearance throat plate. But then, I don’t cut much of anything without one.

    Whoops, by “this push stick” I meant the Dual Tread Push Stick, available from Lee Valley and others.

    I saw this demonstrated at a woodworking show last year. They seemed to work great. I didn’t buy any, because it didn’t make sense to have a push stick that is worth more than the saw. But when I get my big cabinet saw, I will be looking into these. And for what its worth, at the woodworking show, they were selling them in packages of two for around $70.
