I can’t count how many things I’ve used as make shift push sticks around the shop: screwdrivers, broken bits of board or trim — almost anything.  Half the issue with a push stick is finding where you put the thing.  When I saw the Push Loc from Bench Dog, it struck a nerve. 

If you have one of Bench Dog’s docking stations, you can mount the push loc keeper to it and keep the Push-Loc on the fence and ready to go.  The “docking station” makes a handy pencil tray and has a clip for a tape measure.

The Push-Loc itself has an offset handle that makes it safer than whatever bit of stick you find laying around simply because it gets your hands out of harm’s way and improves line-of-sight visibility to the blade and wood.

Street Pricing starts at $15.

    Not for me. A similar one from scrap wood is essentially free. One of my new years resolutions has been to not buy simple things that I can make in my workshop–this is a perfect example.

    The magnetic jaw inserts for my clamps, well that is another story…

    I’ve got a problem with buying a push stick as well. Save yourself $15 and grab some scraps, cut them into nice push-sticks and go ahead and round the corners over on the router-table. Drill a hole through and tie a piece of string through to hang around the shop. $0, and you’ll be less likely to cut it up than if you use a plain piece of scrap out of the pile.
