The Finger Saver

Safely cutting small pieces presents a challenge, especially when the workpiece is smaller than the minimum comfortable distance from the cutters. The Finger Saver sold by Price Cutter aims to give you the control to cut and shape these small pieces while keeping your hands a safe distance away from the cutter.

Use the Finger Saver with your router table, table saw, band saw, drill press, or any other tool with a table large enough to hold it. The Finger Saver holds pieces up to 10″ wide securely between quick-adjusting jaws. You can adjust the built-in fence guide from 0 to 45 degrees for straight cuts, or you can shape pieces freehand with the two large handles.

Considering many companies charge a ridiculously large amount for woodworking jigs, I was surprised to find that this jig runs a mere $20.

    This thing doesn’t LOOK all that sturdy to me, but if it is, I think it’s a great idea. I have a lot more faith in my rip fence than I do in my miter…guage?…gage?…well, I don’t know how to spell it.

    For this size work – I would think most folks would opt for using a miter saw.

    For larger work there is nothing better than using a sliding table saw.

    I can see the benefit – honestly, this turns your table saw into a much more accurate tool for miters, and for $20, well, you cant get a very accurate miter saw for that. The attraction would be for the hobbyist or homeowner (who, by the way, most likely won’t have a biesemeyer fence!)

    I have one, and it’s quite sturdy. The brass knob on the movable piece lifts up so you can move it freely back and forth, and then you drop it down onto the threads and use the aluminum knob to tighten it down.

    That front handle looks way too close to the blade for me. I’d rather use my Incra miter gauge for a cut like the one in the illustration. I suspect it’s a lot more accurate than the Finger Saver, too. I guess it’s all a matter of using what you’re comfortable with, and if you’re comfortable with this, that’s great. I just don’t think I would be.

    GENTLEMEN: YOU HAVE THIS ALL WRONG!!! This is a fine little gadget when used for its proper purpose, to hold small pieces on a ROUTER OR SHAPER table. Hold it in two hand by both handles and ROUTE or SHAPE the small piece held in between.

    The comments posteda bout being unsafe are on a table saw are correct.
