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.
